Between Nelson and Havelock in the Marlborough Sounds there is a turn off signposted to French Pass.
A very twisty road has brought us part of the way, to Elaine Bay, situated amidst the inlets and islands of this archipelago. Facing east, it gave us some protection last night from the prevailing weather, although it was a wild and wet night. As Rob said, at least no worries about the anchor dragging.
It's beautiful here even in pouring rain.
