NZ Green Lipped Mussels are the best – and the best in the world are apparently harvested around Havelock. As previously described, 2.2 kg were bought from the 4 Square store, and cooked in white wine, onion and garlic, and a stock….
There were enough left over for last night’s dinner!
Stopped off at yet another idyllic lake, this time Lake Rotoiti, near St. Arnaud, for lunch.
Did we mention the road works? This occurred every couple of kilometres. This morning (Saturday 25 November) the DOC ranger spoke of very bad behaviour, by locals, during winter. She works with her husband’s road maintenance business during the quiet season and handles the Stop/Go lolli[pop. She said she’s often abused, and even occasionally ignored.
Another beautiful evening (apart from the sand flies!), this time at the DOC site at Marble Hill, where we spent the night.
