TripAdvisor Reviews Chateau Marlborough Blenheim
Travel Blogs from Blenheim
After a rather odd breakfast at the hotel, we spent the day driving through the stunningly beautiful Marlborough sound, exploring its beaches, curvy roads and beautiful vegetation. thankfully, we had another sunny day. tomorrow, we're off to the north island. Yay! :)
Had the most amazing day in Kaikura today. spotted many playful seals nd even a small penguin. Then visited a waterfall where seal puppies cone to play. Magic! Then we headed north for our hotel in Blenheim.
... do not wish to live amongst.
... it was like riding up a steep slope even though it was flat! It was lovely and sunny and so scenic though. We made our way back to the hire place and walked the 5 or so mins back to our place. Doug cooked us a lovely meal and after we spent a good 15-20 mins in the sauna. We then watched the muppets Christmas carol that Doug rented on iTunes on the TV in the cottage. It was so cosy and it was difficult staying awake but had to be done. Tomorrow we head to the Marlborough sounds :) ...
... more on the way back.
We make it to dry land without incident and all contents remaining in our stomachs. A great trip despite the sea conditions.
We have a spot of lunch before heading back north. We stop along the coast, the seals residing most of the way up this coast, and watch the seals laze around, swim or (in the case of the pups) play in the rock pools.
It would be easy to spend a few hours watching them but we pull ourselves away after a while ...
