Show trip route
-drove up to Abel Tasman NP, Golden Bay, Pupu Springs, saw some waterfalls, Takaka
-tried Money Wizard (ambergris-whale spit!? in beer), Stoke, Sprig & Fern and a stop in Free House
-paid for showers at a campsite
-continued the following day with tastings at Moutere Inn (oldest pub in NZ), Neudorf Vineyards (good Rose and Riesling) who supplied Hobbit Pinot Noir at a showing but not my fave (we like to document everything and started to notice that our camera was acting up a lot more frequently by not zooming or off on its focus...it lasted this long, just a few more months, poor shutter has got to be exhausted), Golden Bear (guy from Santa Monica...bad service and beer not so good)
-loved the vibe and beer offerings in Nelson, seems as though they have their fair share of vineyards too
-we had to press on the next day to Kaikora (didn't see any large mammals, just seals), stopped in Kaiapoi and saw a great sunset while we had a car picnic
