IMAGINE as YOUR stress melts away to SERENE FEELINGS then gives way to the ANTICIPATION & ACCOMPLISHMENT as you WALK along the RIVERBED between the Putangirua Pinnacles or up VERY steep STEPS through the EARTHY ANCIENT FOREST, to the LOOKOUT, (watch my Video on YouTube) walk further through scrub & bush along the TRACKS then across a FARM, then descend down steeply to the COASTAL Cape Palliser Road where you will walk back to the Putangirua Pinnacles car park where you left your car. 10 minutes Drive from DreamMists Reatreat.
In SIR PETER JACKSON’S FILM: "LORD OF THE RINGS" the scene "Path of the Dead" was filmed in these PREHISTORIC Putangirua Pinnacles.
Imagine the ACTORS in their COSTUMES acting out that EERIE haunting scene, while you are walking where they walked.
Imagine ENJOYING a QUIET 5 minute stroll down to the beach and enjoying watching the SUNSET with a silhouette of either the KAIKOURA MOUNTAINS of the SOUTH ISLAND in SUMMER or the RIMUTAKA Ranges in WINTER. The Beach can vary from VIVID & BRIGHT to STORMY & RUGGED. Ships and boats pass frequently.
Do you like BUBBLES? Maybe an INVIGORATING plunge into the Sea in a little COASTAL Bay with the SEALS swimming nearby? Could YOUR SKIN BENEFIT from EXFOLIATION with NATURAL SEA WATER, SEAWEED & SAND? Have you ever snorkelled for PAUA? Have you eaten PAUA fried with garlic & butter?
Imagine being captivated by an OCCASIONAL BRIGHT SKY SHOW of DAZZLING STARS, OCCASIONAL SHOOTING STARS or sometimes comets and then slip into the Sun & Air dried cotton sheets for a cosy sleep and amazing DREAMS !..
