Nice French place La Gouramandise serving Pain au Chocolat and Crepes.  We rode our first serious rainday through gold mine country with a very winding wet breeze from the trucks carrying containers to the port here.  Last night we met a bat expert at the streetlights of Pelorus Bridge where it's basically the only place in NZ to see a bat.  We didn't see one but we heard lots of them because he had equipment called bat detectors.  Also saw where Peter Jackson has a scene for the Hobbit movie being filmed.  No hobbits but a last refuge for long tailed bats.
