|We loaded the bus and headed to Nelson with a stop for lunch at the Siefried winery. Here I had the Asian Basket of shrimp, wontons, beef and chicken skewers with a nice glass of their cab/merlot. We then visited the museum of wearable art..no pics allowed and the classic car museum which has some super specimens. We hiked up to the monument that marks the center of NZ..here there were great views of the coastline and city of Nelson. Dinner was at Hopgooding's rATED the number 1 restaURant IN Nelson. Again the food was well presented and better yet, tasted good. I had an apple/coleslaw with infused olive oil and prawns with avocado. A really enjoyable day. tomorrow we leave Motueka and head to Karamea.
