    ... br> The grounds and gardens are lovely and there is a great view across to Russell.

    We then walked to the pier to catch the ferry across to Russell and our hotel for the next two nights.

    Dinner was in the restaurant a few doors down after which we retired for the night. There's a wedding in the hotel and fireworks are going off at the moment, luckily we can't hear the thump of the ...
