Day 6...We made our way north to the city of Blemhem and walked to 4 of the many wineries to taste the local New Zealand wines.
Day 7. We drive through Nelson to Kaiteriteri where Chip's adventure race starts and to meet up with the other athletes. Lots of packing and planning happening for their 7 days of kayaking, hiking, and mountain biking. These athletes are amazing!
Day 8.... Diane and I went mountain biking at the local mountain bike park in Kaiteriteri... We found most of the climbs and some of the fun downhill trails too!
