After the unseasonal rain over the Christmas period in the Nelson region, the summer seems to have arrived. From Retiro Park Lodge Bed and Breakfast we would like to express our sympathies towards the people that have suffered material loss because of the floods. We wish them all the best for the New Year. Fortunately for our visitors and us there was not much damage to report from our patch, just a bit of mess around the garden, which has already been repaired.
The Nelson Jazz Festival is well alive and kicking and will last until the seventh of January for all of Retiro Park Lodge Guests and other visitors to Nelson and Nelsonians to enjoy. However for the people that will arrive amongst us after the seventh of January there will still be plenty of activities happening in the city and the region to have extra fun. One of these interesting activities, starting the fourth of January, is the “Solar City Summer Movies Al Fresco” which will delight cinema lovers. It consists of the screening of four classic films at outside locations in different public spaces of the city and the region at popular prices. A good opportunity to mix with the locals and take part in the great Nelson summer atmosphere.
