What a busy last few days we have had! We started our kiwi experience on Friday 14th February and have already seen so much! Our first driver, Scottie, was a little crazy! We got picked up bright and early and drove down to Kaikoura, town famous for whale and dolphin watching. As we are returning here we thought we would get people's feedback on …

... a breeze. What dismantled it all was the one thing out of my control - the weather again! Too windy for the boats to go out, whale trips cancelled with no time to reschedule.

... The weather was wonderful, considering that yesterday we had strong southerly winds, and the Harbour at Wellington, the Cook Straight, and the Queen Charlotte Sound, leading into Picton, was like a mill pond.
