For our second day we will be heading to Hector for a very enjoyable and interesting stop at the Hector Country Music Heritage Museum run by musician and radio presenter DJ Barry Skinner with the support of his wife Judy. They opened the museum in 2002, a real gem of music history. After that little stop there we head over the bluffs into Karamea for light lunch (included in package) at the Last Resort. On the way back to Westport and if time allows us, we will stop at a few local pubs and enjoy the hospitality. Our evening meal tonight will be at the Quarry Restaurant.
