Looking harmless and cute in their surroundings, we all jumped out of our skins when an aggressive male took to chasing us off the beach with teeth barbed and a loud growl when George attempted a close up photo. After Kaikouro we set off on the long drive to Picton. Finding accommodation close to the quay we then sought food from an Irish bar, run by a Californian and ate freshly baked pizza whilst drinking Guinness and listening to live music. Rounded off the day ...

... just a few bites! Then off we went down into Mistletoe Bay which was really pretty and had loads of big houses hidden in the trees overlooking the sound.
