We had a long drive from Franz Josef to Nelson. It took about 6 -7 hours ;-(.

I found Nelson a very strange place and I don't know why. We arrived late and tried to get some food. We found out that many restaurants actually close before 10am. We only came to Nelson because we wanted to take part in some Sea Kayaking. I had never been sea Kayaking so I was really looking forward to it. Here is a picture of the beach in Nelson.

<p>After Nelson we made our way to Kaiikoura


Bead Gallery

If you love beads you must go to the Bead Gallery in Nelson. This shop is bascially full on little jars with 100's of different beads. You can stay in the shop and make any type of jewellery and the staff are happy to help with any problems.

18 Parere Street
Shops hours 9am -5pm Mon - Sat

We spent about 2 hours in the shop happily making stuff. As we went on a Saturday loads of locals came into the shop with there children. It was lovely watching them use there imagination.
