Kaikoura wasnt just about seals.
It is the place where the mountains meet the sea; the snow covered peaks literally sheering down into the blueness of the ocean.
For us to see this In the snow was another incredible priviledge of this trip.

After Kaikoura we continued up country to be as close as possible to the ferry at Picton. How fortunate to find ourselves in a campsite in the middle of the Marlborough wine district…….

This last day on the south island has started very well with tasting at Cloudy Bay vineyard and then onto a later than scheduled ferry out through the beauteous fjords of the north North Island. We have been watching Albatros flying across the front of the boat and basking in sunshine. More of that on another post! We arrive later in Wellingon and then catch a plane back to Auckland to be greeted by Bowden taxi service and returned to Rukuhia.

We are sad to be counting down the hours til we leave this wonderful country but are beginning to hear ourselves say “I can’t wait to see…..” or “I am looking forward to my bed….” etc.
