    Seven short years ago, Kelly and Marty honeymooned at a beachfront oasis named Adrift - from their description, an idyllic studio with kayaks near Abel Tasman National Park, huge long and wide beach, with breakfast of homemade yoghurt, granola , jams, and crusty bread delivered to your door each day.

    ... this spit where two currents converge. With no land to protect the sand, the wind continues to pile the sand on the dunes, which can move up to 2 meters per day!

    Headed straight off after smoothie time on the winding hour and half long drive up to Takaka, a hippy town in the Golden Bay Area. Once in town I found Rock, scissor, paper, a cute little shop, part owned (as part of a collective) by Hannah an artist friend of Jeff and Katie's. After purchasing a picture, earring and card I headed off to Dangerous cafe for an Eggs Benedict with bacon for brunch. After a further wander around the town stopping at ...
