Arrived in Nelson after a flight from Queenstown to Christchurch then a flight from Christchurch to Nelson. there was only a twenty minute gap between flights so it meant a quick sprint from one gate to another, pretty tight I have to say.

Picked up a car in Nelson and just drove for about half an hour to a little place called Ruby Bay. It was beautiful, there was a restaurant called the boatshed right on the entrance to the river, it was a really still evening the sea was like a mill pond and a bit misty. Across the river were some pine trees and beyond that a creek with a few boats. I ordered belly of pork, followed by a lemon posset which was superb washed down with a couple of glasses of cider, watch the sunset and the full moon rise, BLISS.

Today drove to Moteuka about half an hours drive. then had a wander round the town picked up soroof ood then went to kaiteriteri. Lovely golden sandy beach, blue sky and sunshine. Back to the campsite for half an hour in the hot tub. Very relaxing day. Life doesn't get much better.
