    ... with each approaching wave all the way back into port. One of our noteworthy hikes from Picton took us along the headlands and provided beautiful views of the Marlborough Sound and inlets we had kayaked the previous day, note the calm waters. It is time to continue our journey South to Kaikoura. Kaikoura was a former Maori settlement which later became a whaling station for European settlers. This is an area where the mountain descends to the sea and continues under the ...

    ... lovely Maori gate and bird hide. It's a rough walk across rocks and dodging the pools, apparently to see few more seals... I decide to leave them to it and head back to the shelter of the car. After all this excitement Paul has his eye on a special steak meal in town, to which we thankfully repair. An excellent meal /beer/wine, followed by homemade icecream from Poppy's. I had salted caramel, and orange/ginger. Pete think I end too many blogs with ...

    ... first stop was a place called Paia Point, located just south of Kaikoura. The area is well known for its dolphins, whales and seals as the sea conditions provide an abundance of food for them.

    ... When we arrived reception had closed. Which we have found in lots of places in NZ you have to check in before 7:30pm and check out before 10am. Very strange. We rang the guy who came and met us, he was a typical kiwi, really broad accent. We had to pay $5 for wifi which was annoying but I really needed to check emails as we wanted to go horse riding the next day. We were woken at 2:30 by a load of lads outside our room running up and down and shouting, thank god we had ear ...
