Day18 Sanson to Levin
I was supposed to visit Parmerston North but I changed my mind.
So what I did was keep following State Highway1 straight to Wellington.
About 140km to the Capital. Probably 3 days to go.
Soon after leaving Sanson, I found a picnic table at Waireka Manuka factory outlet.
While I was taking a short break, the owner came up to me.
Richard was his name. We talked about travel for a while.
He asked me if I liked honey and I said yes.
I received a small bottle of NZ Manuka Honey.
Richard said he was glad to have met me.
And I said thanks and goodbye to him
Chilly wind was still blowing.
I’m getting closer to the sea…Yes, Tasman Sea.
Beyond the sea is the continent I ran across last year…Australia.
Kept running while playing with cows and sheep.
Slow pace, 7-8km per hour.
I don’t have to hurry. Even if I run slowly, it’s okay if I can reach today’s goal by the end of the day.
It’s been sunny most of the day.
Had some head wind and hills but I made it.
About 3pm, I finished running at a motel at the entrance of the town of Levin.
