Drive further out of Blenheim to park up in a quiet street by a field only to find we are virtually surrounded by houses next day!
Woke up to cloud and drizzle to see an estuary to the front of us and a beach behind us - lovely spot and were joined by a couple of surfers and dog walkers. Rain gets heavier so decide to drive to Picton to see if the weather is better there and Marlborough Sounds - is even worse so have fish and chips in the harbour and then read more books and do more Spanish lessons on our ipod (which is being v temperamental). Are a bit lost when its raining but have a productive afternoon and then make decision to drive to Blenheim again as there is a Dominos pizza there (sad I know, but they are only 6.95 each with a voucher we have which makes it just over 2 quid for our dinner!). Also call up my sister and brother-in-law and speak to my nephew who can now say 'oh dear!' - valuable education already and also blows kisses down the 'phone - he obviously knows its me. Makes me a bit homesick to think of them playing with him today but they promise to send a video clip.
