Nice 2 bedroom bungalow with lots of space. It is located a bit out of Blenheim but very handy for a few wineries. It has all the facilities you could need so we ate in mostly. Only down sides would be it is on the main road (SH6) so a bit noisy plus you have to drive if you want to eat out.

She had to be flown out by helicopter because there's no road access to Nydia Bay. She had been in Nelson hospital for the past couple of weeks and his dad had went to visit her. On our way over to Havelock we made one final stop so I could make a photo. Once again: words fail to capture the beauty of New Zealand.
... so we stopped there. It was also a café with a great balcony dining area looking down onto Farewell Spit. We came undone when we saw they had Scallop pies on the menu. Actually Russ did very well because as he started eating his he realised it was actually Venison. When he bought this to their attention they said no worries... keep that and we'll bring you a scallop one too. So we sat on the balcony and enjoyed the ...
... the crossing, doing what we often do in down time, a combination of blogging, planning the next few weeks of our trip and playing chess. The crossing passed pretty quickly and soon we were picking our way through the islands of Marlborough Sound (I say "we" but most of the credit should probably go to the captain!). The views were stunning coming into Picton and our excitement built for our time on the South Island. From Picton, we drove to Nelson through ...
