          ... We stopped at a few of the hidden beaches and lookout points before heading back on ourselves along the route we originally walked. We'd have much preferred to do a loop, or carry on walking and then get a boat transfer back to the car but the options were either nonexistent or expensive respectively. After our walk we continued our road trip across to Nelson. Quite hungry by this time we grabbed some lunch from a supermarket and found a ...
