After being at the Nelson Motor Show we decided to head back to Blenheim via the Golden Downs Top House Road.

A mate was with us from Geraldine and he had never been to Lake Rotoiti, so we popped up there for an icecream.

We took him to the jetty at the lake to show him the eels that live there - they're huge.

To my amazement people where swimming around them and jumping off the end of the jetty.

I snapped this shot of two girls jumping off the end of the jetty with the mountains in the background.

This is my favourite shot from my seven-week trip home to New Zealand.
