The track now descends to follow the shore

Wednesday 20th February 2013: Our last day was relatively short so we had time to check out some of the quirky art around Lochmara Lodge.

The it was back up the hill to the main Queen Charlotte Track, a sidle around A815 (416m but the track stays below 280m), dropping down to Mistletoe Bay then climbing to about 200m above Onahau Bay then swinging west to descend to the northern shore of Grove Arm and on to Anakiwa where we meet the launch to return us to Nelson.

As predicted, an entrepreneur was at the track end to sell something yummy, refreshing and unhealthy, then there was the staples of icecream, L&P and Coke while we waited for the Sounds Adventure "Cougar" launch to return to Nelson and civilization.
