Starting our South Island Journey

We are just back from a trip to the South Island. After being here for four years I thought it was time we saw some more of New Zealand. So of we went on a very cold, wet and grey day. Our first ferry trip across the Cook Straight.
The scenary was brooding and grey and magnificent.
Peter stayed out on deck, being wind swept. Trying to stave off the sea sickness.
The sea was choppy but not too bad.

After what seemed like a long time the South Island and the Marlbourgh Sounds appeared out of the greyness.
And the sun started to breakthrough the clouds.

First sight of Picton our destination.
Peter soaking up the sun.
The first part of the journey almost over. We had booked into an apartment in Picton for the night, for a good rest, we all needed it. More of the south island tomorrow.
