By the time we got to Picton it was dark, and we were glad we had booked a cabin for the night. Had a lovely meal that catered for me vegetarian and gluten-free wise, but had a few more carbs than I should have had, diabetes wise.
Next morning we headed to Nelson via Queen Charlotte Sounds. Such a beautiful drive. It took us ages as we drove slowly and stopped lots, including going for a one hour walk at one point.
This was the noisiest tree ever - it was chocka with nesting shags.
Nelson at last.
Tenting instead of getting a cabin. This was a mistake. It was really cold, and the dew made everything as wet as if it had rained all night.
In the evening we saw this wonderful movie - a new kiwi classic.
