... around the Marlborough sound shore line is huge with the many arms hills around the town are shrouded in low cloud and mist. Very aquatic, lots of boats beautiful. Picton is the South Island terminal of the inter-island ferry. This year Picton received approx 75 cruise ships and next year this is expected to rise to 90, amazing. We could spend a lot more time here. We had to be back on board by 2.30 for an early departure for Sydney. We left lovely ...
... starfish. Picton seems to survive on timber (lots of logs on the wharf), fishing and tourism but was very unspoilt. It has a museum on whaling and the remains of the only surviving East Indiaman, the Edwin Fox, which is now just a sad hulk. It also has the remains of the scow, Echo, which was a cargo ship in the Cook Strait for 60 years. They are trying to preserve both vessels but are obviously short of ...

The place was terrible value for money. The bedding stank. We quickly went to subway for a bite to eat as we hadn't eaten since lunch.
