Stayed at a very quiet motel at whataroa last night then some pretty straight roads up the coast to greymouth. Arthurís pass back to Christchurch is amazing. Took in the noodle markets with Vena, now crashed out in his caravan. Tomorrow is Lewis pass back over to the west coast, a legendary scratchers road. CX got a new rear hoop this arvo, she is ready!
Cheers from sunny Sydney

Didnít stop at the brewery very tempted though 😊 enjoyed the back way from ikamatua through to greymouth except the last corner which turns into a t intersection with no warning. Coast road up to Westport is cool but busy with tourists in campervans. Time for a beer😛

Westport to Karamea is a hoot, a few gravelly corners to keep you on your toes. Came back down the same road then off to murchinson, really great road. In Nelson tonight

Yep, youíre right in the heart of hop country in Nelson, lots and lots of top brews on offer. If you get the chance, try a Hop Federation Red IPA, mmmmmmm delishus  :D
(they also have a stout...  ;))
