Alan & Bev camped at Matai Motor Camp. Hosts gave us a remote part of this large camp so the dogs could have a bit of freedom to roam, a little.
Nelson. Market Day. Great entertainment.
This guy has been illegally (according to the law) parking his horse here on Market Day for 'years'. Never paid the more than $100,000 worth of fines as the Court always seems to rule in his favour. But why does he do it? To make a point??

This kind lady let me take her picture while she contemplated the view. A local, and a regular visitor to this bench.
Farewell Spit
Farewell Spit stretches more than 30 kilometres into the Tasman Sea. The Maori name for the spit is Onetahua, meaning 'heaped up sand'. A bird sanctuary since the 1930s it provides a home for over 90 bird species. Bar tailed godwits, knots, curlews, whimbrels and turnstones fly around 12,000 kilometres every northern hemisphere autumn to spend the summer here in the south. The spit also has a gannet colony. Farewell Spit's first lighthouse was built in 1869.

Camped overnight. Just outside Pakawau.

Takaka
At the bottom of the Takaka Hill this old cottage caught our eye.
Riwaka Crystal Pool
Seen on the walk to the Resurgence. Purest, cleanest, clearest water we've ever see.
Riwaka Resurgence
A short walk from the picnic area/car park took us up to the stunning crystal pool and the source of the Riwaka River. It is steep at first but soon levels off and is worth the climb. DOC area, no dogs allowed on the walk. Purest, cleanest, clearest water we've ever see.
Riwaka Resurgence. On the track to the Resurgence
The water here is some of the purest to be found in the Southern Hemisphere. Very cold and clear and same source as Pupu Springs.
