After berrying up for the day, we headed to a small wharf town called Mapua. This is a cute little place with cafes, bars, and unique stores. It was interesting to walk through the neighbourhood and into some of the stores. We saw some beautiful art pieces and unique gift ideas. It didn't take much time at all to walk through all of Mapua. There is a ferry that goes from here to Rabbit Island where there are nice hiking trails and beaches, but we opted not to do that today.
Finally, we were on the road again, heading to Motueka. This is a larger town than Mapua, but not by much. We walked down the main street wondering how so many bakeries could survive on just one short street! I thought I should support one, so I bought a little quiche. We continued walking off the main street and into a really nice neighbourhood with beautiful homes facing the beach. We walked along the beach back to the beginning of town and back along the main street.
We picked up some groceries to make lunches for tomorrow, as we will be heading to Abel Tasman National Park for the day to enjoy beautiful beaches, great walking, and lovely sunshine!
