As we approached Otago, the sun peeped out from behind the grey Canterbury clouds, matching the enthusiasm and energy of the Kauri campers. Leaving behind damp Ashburton and drizzly Timaru, the team raced down the steps to the magical Moeraki boulders, leaping and posing. Hitting Dunedin Holiday Camp at 5pm, we unpacked and headed off to St Kilda's Beach where we rolled, dug, raced and cartwheeled. After a scrummy dinner, it was off to wash, spin a few yarns and relax. Bring on day two!
