We had a nice walk along the waterfront and along the marina, we saw the inter islander come in from Wellington three hours away on the north island and had a look around the few small shops that Picton offers.
We walked back out into the street and were greeted with not only blue skies and burning hot sun, but float upon float making their way along the streets, with absolutley scores of people everywhere - we had walked into the middle of the Picton Santa Parade!
Of course, we stood there and joined in with the crowds watching
Today we had planned to go out and visit the Marlborough sounds, but weather is raining and the visibility wouldnt be good so we decided to chill out and give it a miss.
Tommorow we are heading towards Nelson and the Abel Tasman National Park. By the time you all wake up and get this email you will find some nice piccies uploaded on the NZ pages!
