      Picking up the Mystery Machine

      A travel blog entry by josh-and-abbie on Nov 04, 2014

      ... chocolate fudge cake. Already it was our fourth day on the South Island of New Zealand and our journey north was still going. Sunday 26th had one destination in store; Abel Tasman National Park. Named after the famous Dutch explorer we arrived at the National Park by lunch time, with the first view of note, Split Apple Rock. Unfortunately the tide was in so we couldn't walk out to see the natural phenomenon, which as the name suggests looks like ...

      A lovely clear sky when I peered out at 6.30 so I slipped out to catch the sunrise over Kaikora. After yesterday's Seafest there were a fair number of youngsters sleeping in sleeping bags on the beach, must have been a cold night. We set off North and the road hugs the coast for the first 50 miles or so with the mountains coming down to the sea in places. 30 Kms north of Kaikora is the Ohau seal reserve. The females are just stating to give birth and we saw ...

      Awoke early to catch the 7.00 morning ferry to Picton, the South Island. After a gentle three hour ferry crossing we joined the Stray Bus passengers at Picton and began our drive down the south island. En-route we stopped at Drylands, Marlborough winery. After sipping a few dry wines we hopped back on to the bus and continued on to Nelson. After arriving in Nelson centre we walked a good thirty minutes to the hostel. It wasn't quite what either ...

      ... up to see the views of Havelock, the surrounding valleys and Pelorus Sound at Cullen Point Lookout, lovely! This would be a sea-kayaker's paradise!

      We made a stop at a historic (no, not a pub!) bridge, Pelorus Bridge Reserve, where we walked out to a very interesting suspension bridge and read some history plaques about a murderous gang that preyed on successful miners in the gold ...

      ... up front paddling, Cathy behind steering (and paddling). We managed not to rock the boat too much and didn't capsize! Having stopped for a picnic on one of the beaches, we continued on. As the sea breeze had picked up a bit we tried hoisting a sail with all 5 kayaks together and blew along for a while towards Anchorage Bay along the part we had walked on Thursday. The sea shuttle took us back to Kaiteriteri to end a lovely day. Thanks for all your comments - keep them ...
