Instead of working in the morning, David drove all of us to Motueka, as they have a Sunday market on. It was smaller than the Nelson one, with more of an alternative selection of stalls. I think the only thing anyone brought was some Neudorf cheese, although the Neudorf dairy is only down the road from their house!
Whilst the Sands family went round New World, me and Alice had a look round the crystal shop nearby, although Heather says it's not as good as it used to be.
On the way home, we stopped off at a shop/ cafe called Toad Hall to get real fruit ice creams, which used the same machine as the one I had in Hokitika. I had a banana and strawberry frozen yoghurt one, and tried to pay, but Heather got ours, as she felt guilty for the job she set us for the afternoon... cutting down overgrown barberry and gorse. It was alright cutting it down, but because it's so prickly and we didn't have proper pruning gloves, we got scratched a lot dragging it to the pile. Because it was the afternoon as well, it got very hot and the cow licked my water bottle lid!
David's friend Marty stayed for dinner with us, which was a roast, followed by chocolate angel delight, and then Heather gave us a shot of raspberry liqueur as she needed the bottle. He left, but whilst we were doing the washing up, a German couple who had been helpers previously arrived, as they are staying for 2 nights too.
