Checked out of the hostel and had a wander around Nelson (including a visit to change our ferry booking to tomorrow - Tuesday). Headed for Havelock stopping only for a lovely walk along the banks of the Pelorus River and into the forest at Pelorus Bridge. Booked into the very quiet Havelock YHA (which is in the old wooden building in which the scientist Ernest Rutherford went to school). Bizarrely the school was rotated 90 degrees in the 1920's to give the pupils more sunshine at the head teacher’s request. We dined at the Mussel Pot and I indulged in the Havelock especially of green lipped mussels (sorry NZ but the French mussels may be smaller - but they are more tasty).
