We took a little trip up to Nelson before the busy-ness of the school year starts up. The drive from Christchurch was quite scenic and the sunny weather made for good photos.
We stopped at a waterfall just off the highway on the drive up. Unfortunately I slipped on a large loose rock in the gravel parking lot and scratched up my hand catching my fall -- haven't had that kind of dirt burn for a long time. At first I thought the kayak sign was a mistake, but then D said you could actually kayak down the falls. Crazy!
