Day 38 (23.2.2013): Nelson
A quiet day, still filled with activity 😉
Met again with Lindsay and started the day with the well-known market in Nelson. This is a famers and art/handcrafts market, very nice. Finally I bought one of those handcrafted wooden bowls which I fell for at my first visit to New Zealand. It’s made of beech burr which a kind of anomaly in the tree which results in a distinctive pattern. My wooden bowl is from Kemp Lenihan – http://glenwoodcraft.greencircle.co.nz
In the afternoon we went for some wine tasting in the surrounding vineyards. Nelson is neighboring the well-known Marlborough wine region. In one of the wineries we got a bottle of Gewürztraminer which made our dinner – together with all the fantastic cheese, bread and fruit we got at the market.
Later that evening we made it to the “church pub” which is a pub set-up in an old church. They had some life music and we met some locals as well. Was yet another fun day & evening. 🙂
