Nelson to French Pass, then onto Picton

Has been amazing the weather that I have had for my time in NZ. As I ride east out of Nelson, it is a gorgeous morning!

And what a great way to start my morning. Nice twisty pavement up into the mountains

and it seems to get better

Was thinking about this card a friend gave me….

I took the road out to French Pass which is 60km north out to the end of the road.

Someones roadside sense of humor

Okiwi Bay

When the road turns to gravel for the last 22KM. It gets better yet!!

They were doing road works most of the way.

Lots of blue sky, sheep, beautiful scenery the whole way!

Arriving French Pass

Great little place! They had a cool campsite, but I had made other plans for the evening!

Sat on the beach and enjoyed the view

Then I get to ride it again!!

What a great day!!

I ended up in Picton staying with Diana’a Sister and Brother in Law!
