The Port Underwood road is a beauty. It was slippery due to recent rain and logging traffic but a lot of fun and the secluded bays and water vista's are just amazing.
We stayed in Havelock that night before heading to Nelson via the Maungapautu Track the next morning.
As it climbed quickly into the clouds the weather closed in and we spent most of the ride peering through the grey mist as we slid around on red clay.
We had lunch at the Boathouse in Nelson and the tucker was so good we contemplated hanging around for tea. There were places we needed to be though.
