Today we drove from Timaru to Nelson, where we spent a night so we could go out with our friends Martin & Caroline.
There are people you come across in your life who are just so genuine, kind and lovely to be around, and this couple is all of those things, we really enjoy spending time with them.
We went out for dinner first …
... on Sunday, and long enough to convince me the weather was better here, 2 hours North of Wellington, than it had been in the drizzly capital. But the drizzle caught up with me, and without sunshine there isn't much going on. Plenty of artsy places, cafes and educational establishments, but also plenty of concrete blocks, empty lots and unlovely gaps in between them that make it hard to find where the life is after hours.

Bentley's have fantastic motel rooms. This is one of the most spacious rooms I've ever stayed in, complete with a 2 person spa pool (which I really loved!).
Breakfast is provided, however this was pretty average, I'd recommend eating at one of the many lovely cafes in the area.
