25th February Tuesday
We had to decide whether we stayed here for another night and do a walk or drive into Nelson and have a sightseeing day then go to the next location. We decided to have a rest day and do some sightseeing, I say a rest day but we still walked up to the centre of New Zealand which was all uphill but well worth the effort as we had some wonderful views above the city of Nelson. We decided to treat ourselves to some fish and chips so we found out where the nearest chip shop was unfortunately by the time we got there it was 2:30 and the shop had shut at 2pm, so it was cheese sandwiches for lunch again ho hum one day. We drove to the Abel Tasman National Park and stayed at MacDonald's at Marahau, old Macdonalds Farm that is a campsite.We did some washing and then settled down for the night.
