    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.

    Packed our bags and set off back to Nelson on route to Blenheim. We called in Nelson because it has a reputation for having lots of Arts and Crafts. Looked around a few places but nothing caught my eye so we continued on planning to stop for a walk. First we stopped at Boulder Bank on the outskirts of Nelson, managed to photo a few birds but didn't …

    We had a great farmhouse platter and we visited four wineries in total.
    The Martinborough winery area is worthwhile taking a further look, yes I will have to suggest this to Mark for another time.

      ... drove to Rabbit Island where Allan, Roma and Paul all had a swim in the sea and I took pictures. We sunbathed for a while then headed off to another lovely place called Mapua., which has some art workshops and a variety of cafés, bars and restaurants. We spotted a very nice restaurant called "The Apple Shed" so we reserved a table for dinner later that day and went off in search of some vineyards.

      The first one was closed, for a function, but we managed ...

    ... back to shore, but not before a pod of dusky dolphins get in on the act. We slow down a bit but are still going at a pace, but the dolphins effortlessly outpace us. They swim along by the side of the boat, under it and jumping up out of the water. It's quite a spectacle, there are loads of them, even those further away from the boat still jump up out of the water. Dolphins seem to have a lot of time to play. There's certainly worse creatures you could be born as.

    1. It happens on a large scale.
    This year’s vintage was a record breaking one for Marlborough Vintners. A total of 9000 tonnes of grapes were processed in just 6 weeks. Grapes arrive to the winery by the 10-tonne truckload. Each tonne of grapes yields around 750 litres of juice, depeding on the type of grape. There are over 150 ...
