We did find a brief moment to visit the beautiful Kaiteriteri Beach, which has to rate as one of the best beaches in the Nelson region. BUT it was wall-to-wall people. Last time Rod was there, admittedly not at the height of the season – and a VERY long time ago, it was both beautiful and deserted. I’d love to go back there in the winter and just chill out and do some collecting, because even with so many people there, we noticed quite a few shells on the beach. Loved the fascinating shapes of the limestone boulders.
