We chose to take the scenic Queen Charlotte Drive through the Malborough Sounds and it was a really beautiful trip.
Further along we stopped to “ooooh” and “aaaah” over the clear water at The Grove near Okiwa Bay.We drove into Havelock and stopped for coffee at a cafe near the harbour.
As we got closer to Nelson we turned off the main road onto Cable Bay Road to stop in at an adventure centre and enquire about their four wheelers. Nicholas really, really wanted to drive a four wheeler however most places there was an age restriction and even though our son is tall he is only ten. No luck for Nicholas but lucky for us we found the ideal spot for lunch!
This is where we stopped for the night.
