... On the way down the mountain, there are a few lookouts into Resolution Bay, the water was an amazing aquamarine colour, that was so clear and when we got near the bottom we could hear the waves gently lapping on the shore. We had to remind ourselves that this is the sea.

The greenery changes quite a bit, the lower levels are full of tree ferns, with fronds extending outwards of 6-8 feet, that would provide perfect dapple shade in the garden, and other ...

... Family Estate where they only do sparkling wines - very nice. We tried to go to a fourth but they were closed. Got back and collapsed on the sofas.

Wednesday we got up early and set off to Picton to go on our boat trip. We started by going on a small boat to Motuara island where we had about an hour and a half to wander around. We were given a list of the wildlife we should see and we did see the majority including Blue Penguins who have nesting ...

I was absolutely gutted to have to leave Yealands before the big post vintage party which happens each year. However I had to make to way to South Africa for my next big adventure so I can't complain really. Eglantine, our vintage winemaker, also had to leave on the same day as me to get to California for a job (the glamorous world of winemaking!!) so we had a couple of goodbye parties at each of our houses to make up for it. On our last day I learned about ...

... time for two more stops, firstly at Gelsen Wines, a vineyard run by three brothers. We purchased a small bottle of Merlot for the end of our Abel Tasman trek, and a bottle of Sauvignon too. Here we bumped into Jackie and Lizzie, who had made friends along the way with another girl (in the sober light of day we really can't remember her name!) The five of us made Wairaku River just in time for a quick tasting and to pick up a bottle of their ...
