In between spells of heavy rain, we managed to get out to the rig with some kitchen bits 'n pieces. Items such as; bowls, platters, serving dishes, tea towels etc. We found places for everything, although I'm sure we'll rearrange it once we're on the road.
Before we headed back home we sat and enjoyed time with the dogs. They were both settled. Oakly likes to sit on the step and catch any new smells wafting by. It's a good spot to watch the world pass by too. Boo prefers to sit up on top of a lounge chair. She's got a good view from there, plus it's nice and comfy.
And Paddy likes his own space in the back of the truck. It's spacious, cosy and safe. All things that Paddy loves.
The new NZMCA Travel Directory arrived in the mail the other day. We had a quick look through to see if there were any new places to stay in the Nelson region that were dog-friendly. We saw a POP site out at Spring Grove we hadn't noticed before. So we decided to drive out and check it out, as we'd considered spending the last night in Nelson there.
It's only a coin donation(max. 3 nights) and dogs are allowed. There's a large, flat, grassy area in the front of the hall which would be great for parking - if the weather was fine.
Behind the hall there's a small gravel area where a couple of large vehicles could park on. There's water available too. It looked like an ideal place to stay and one we'll keep in mind.
