This Saturday I leave for Nelson. I arrive a couple of days before the tour so that I can visit the beautiful Nelson/Marlborough area first. On the Sunday, I'm going on a four wheel drive trip to Farewell Spit. Ever since writing my children's book 'Save Our Seas' - where I had to research every bit of coastline around New Zealand - I have wanted to visit Farewell Spit. I hope to see lots of sea birds and perhaps some seals.
After the Farewell Spit trip I travel slowly to Blenheim in time for the tour. I'll be at these schools and libraries for the next couple of days:
Tuesday 8th May - Witherlea School, Marlborough District Library, Raupara School
Wednesday 9th May- Motueka South School, Motueka Public Library, Hampden St School
Thursday 10th May- Waimea Intermediate School, Nayland Primary School.
