Kaikoura Bates Motel

Drove up to Kaikoura for the night to be ready for the whale watching trip the next morning.

AM discovered that the hospital has a nurses' residence at a hospital in Kaikoura which health workers can stay at very cheaply, even just for the night.

What we discovered on our arrival was not the anicipated nurses residence filled with millions of nurses and their outrageous antics, no, we were confronted with an old detatched building, totally dark and empty, not unlike the Bates Motel. Surprisingly, it was at least warm, though too spooky for some. As we sat down for a cup of tea and switched on the huge an ancient TV set we were amused (and some were afraid) to see a vintage Frankenstein film as the only viewing option.

We offered to let Nadine sleep in our room but she said she was ok but slept with the light on all night just the same!

This is the actual Bates motel - i think the place we stayed was modelled on it.
