    It was an early morning start today when we rose at 5.30 to be on our way to the ferry for 6.30,
    although it didn't leave till 8.30. The last check in was meant to be 7.30 and Hughie was taking no chances!

    ... 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.

    ... a mountain! There before us at the white spear-like sculpture that marked the central point was a 360 degree view of the sea, Nelson and the Maitai Valley. This was the perfect way to say goodbye to this scenically attractive area where we’d had a lovely time...even though NZ lost to Oz in the cricket final!
