We then headed up onto a series of hills, and walked across pastureland. As we moved away from the water we felt like we'd been transported to Switzerland, seeing cows, with snow capped mountains in the background. We came down the hills on the other side of the peninsula, ate our lunch at a picnic area, and had one final hiking section through the bush and some fields to get back to our hostel. We picked up the rest of our gear and headed to the station for our train ride back to Christchurch.
