General:

A nice walk around the circle loop at Pelorus Bridge, then followed the Pelorus River past the historic gold mining town of Canvastown to Havelock. Canvastown earned it’s name in the gold mining days when so many gold prospectors arrived in such a short time that the majority of the shelters were canvas tents. Havelock…Greenshell Mussel Capital of the World.

Very good.
