We suffered a really cold night where we didn't know about the air-conditioning and the silly fan heater had the biggest knock in it and just plain didn't heat up. Anyway, we arose to bright sunshine, a stiff chilly breeze and within an hour it was very overcast, low clouds and extremely cold (by our uninitiated standards). We checked out a seal colony and stopped for some scallops for Relle and a lobster fritter for Mikey! We hugged the coast and a railway line for a long way and ...

Filled in one rainy day sampling the lovely Marlborough wines and spent one day crusing the sound on a 'Mail Run Cruise'
Thre are quite a lot of little isolated settlements ...

... estates listed the residual sugar of their wines on the bottle, which was very interesting for me. All the Reds were at or below 2g/100ml whilst some of the whites were below 3g/100ml. On the other hand, some such as the Gewürztraminer were up to 7g/100ml. From the tastings I didn't particularly admire any of the Reds so I conceited that white was the wine to get in Marlborough.
