... Sound, appear and we enjoyed another lovely trip on what must be one of the most beautiful ferry journeys in the world.

We arrived in Picton around 5.30 in the afternoon – a beautiful sunny afternoon.

As is typical in New Zealand when we exited the pub it was still sunny but on our drive down it started to rain. The weather is very changeable here.

... flattened and being rebuilt, or sitting boarded up with smashed roofs awaiting demolition. Ie lots of car parks but very few people apart from a few wandering tourists like us. The most interesting was the "re-start mall" made of shipping containers welded together and fitted out with windows and doors. You could not tell from the inside but from outside it was obvious. The saddest was the cathederal, it looked like an axe had cut off one end, mostly boarded up and ...
