It was decided to spend our final day in Nelson. First though we stopped in at Lake Rotoiti to visit the giant eels under the jetty. It was looking quite eerie this morning.
Nelson is about 90 minutes drive north of Tophouse. As the sunniest place in New Zealand, today it did not disappoint. After walking through the parks, by the ocean and around the town, we both decided it would be a very liveable city.
On the northern outskirts of Nelson is the Founders organic brewery. It is located in a historic park that employs an old lady determined to take your park entrance fee even if you just want to go and buy some beer. Fortunately it was almost 3pm on Friday and time for the market and the gates to open wide to all.
And it wouldn’t be New Zealand without a flock of sheep and some fresh fush’n’chups to finish off the day.
