My big trip south I

Last week I returned from a big trip SOUTH. The first part of the trip was to Nelson and Takaka.  I camped on a farm where all the other members coming to the weekend were gathered. We had a wonderful evening around the fire.  

Next day we went to a farmlet on the side of a hill on very strong limestone soil.  There was a cave in the rock for cellaring the wines grown on the small vineyard.  There was a grove of Moso.  Here a foto.

The culms are still rather small.  Most can grow to twice this size.

There was a Japanese bell on the property.  It is alleged to be the largest in NZ.  

On  a cool clear morning the bell can be heard in Takaka, 5 kms away.

Here we are standing inside a semi cave in a limestone outcrop.  You get a nice view over the surrounding area of Golden Bay.

Nelson is a very beautiful part of New Zealand.  Cheers Chris, the pipegrower.
