Motueka to Wharariki then Cable Bay

... put to use with live entertainment from time to time.


Takaka itself appears to be a hive of artists with many galleries, panoramic murals on many external walls and beautiful hanging baskets along both sides of the street.

The wind never abated all day which made driving the big van on the mountainous roads hard work for Russ. Driving up the peninsular even in the ...
