Welcome to another TBT! Today is about when we visited Golden Bay in Nelson. This was during our Christmas Holidays in the South Island back in 2009.
Golden Bay is located around Nelson, a few hours drive from Blenheim (in the South Island) where we were spending Christmas with our extended family. We often went for little day trips, and one day Dad suggested this. The name alone sounded intriguing, and we were all keen to go out for a day trip.
It was very pretty, and very busy! Especially since it was the summer holidays.
We brought lunch and had a picnic on the beachside.
We went back to exploring the beach. There was lots of boats out in the water.
Andrew and I made lots of sandballs. Basically, you get wet sand, make a ball out of it, coat it in dry sand and repeat.
Then we helped to partially bury Jo.
It was a good day.
Bye Golden Bay. Till next time.
