    Well Tahunanui was where the motel was!

    ... seem a long way to the top. What made it worse were the number of people running up! Clearly training or keeping fit but all clearly masochists. The views from the top were worth it and we could see the Abel Tasman coast in the distance. Descending a trial for the knees but achieved as the first rain drops fell! Fish and chips from the fish shop but not nearly as good as four years ago. Maybe the shop was under new ownership. So farewell to Nelson and onward to North ...

    ... to have with a quick cup of tea, then back out this time to the supermarket in Motueka. I purchased all the required to make chicken and beef fajitas (one of Jeff, Jacks and mine favourite dinners).

As it was the start of the coastal walk there were a number of people on the path, all younger. There was quite a collection of different approaches and dress wear that I have attempted ...

    ... we may well have been trapped on the other side so decide to turn back. We may not have seen as much of the track as we had planned, but we did have the weather on our side and very much enjoyed it.

    We drive back down to Kaiteriteri and have the muffin (that we forgot we had at lunch!) on the beach. We draw the attention of lots of seagulls and sparrows, and a very friendly duck. The duck is without a doubt the bravest of the bunch. It waddles up to where Kirsty is ...
