Nelson & Golden Bay Summer roadie - Part 1

Whilst it would appear that I've been hard at work this week, the reality is that I was off on a photographic road trip around the gorgeous Nelson/Golden Bay area. The weather was beautiful and I've returned with a whopping 897 photos from 4 days worth of shooting! There were so many fantastic places in such a relatively small area, which reminded me a lot of the Catlins down south, and there were several little gems that really made the trip.. coffee on a pirate ship in Tata Beach (I'm a self confessed pirate fan from way back), Laingdons General Store in Bainham, and sipping a 'fizzy frog' fejoa cider at the Mussel Inn to name a few. The prospect of condensing the whole trip down into one blog post seems like a fairly daunting task, so there will be a few more posts to follow..

Coffee on the Espresso pirate ship at Tata Beach.. yarrr!

Golden tan, golden shoes and golden sand on Totaranui Beach.

One of the many abandoned houses in the region, this one was found in Appleby.
