One of the “treasures of Nelson” is right here…

…laid out for your eyes to see. Due to a geological “freak act” we are seriously, & incredibly lucky to find ourselves living here in Nelson with a very special sheltered place called “The Haven” (photographed above)

The most “major” thing is that because of, perhaps the term should be “courtesy of”  the Boulder Bank, we find ourselves with a completely sheltered inlet, sheltered 100% from the tides, but less so from the “gusts of nature.” Something that was definitely not lost on the early settlers and probably explained our place in NZ history as one of the first “most likely” habitable places.
