We did a little more sitting in that sun on the deck, some of us pretending to stretch while we played Scrabble with far-flung friends.
The boulder bank of NelsonThe Boulder Bank is built from rock that falls into the sea from cliffs along the coast a few kilometres to the north east. These rocks get rounded by rolling along the sea bed, pushed by current and wave action. As the current slows they get dropped in a row that stretches in a 13 kilometre long finger extending south from the cliffs, forming a geologically rare boulder bank.

Here's the boulder bank just down from our rental.
Even this small piece of it is vast.
This is not an easy beach to walk, but it's absorbing trying to navigate the great hunks of stone.
More produce please. I'm sorry I didn't leave this woman a note thanking her for her contribution to many good meals.
Apart from the inescapable online news, a happy sunny day
