    ... our walk along the waterfront towards the pier. Following the little pictures of Dory (the blue and yellow fish from the film Nemo) we headed down the pier, passing dolphin tours, gift shops and a fish monger. At the end of the pier was a jewellery shop, selling beautiful blue pearls set in stunning jewellery. I learned all about how the blue pearl was cultivated using the New Zealand Paua (a marine sea snail). The blue pearls are made up of thousands of layers of nacre ...

The way back to the West coast was via the Lewis Pass. We found this less dramatic but more scenic, although we met a lot of rain and the clouds descended ...
