Flag of New Zealand  , Marlborough,
Wednesday, February 16, 2011

We made it to Picton without anymore troubles from Pedro (and hopefully it'll stay that way for the remainder of the trip), and was able to catch the 2:00pm ferry! The sail lasted about 3 hours, giving us daylight to enjoy the Marlborough Sounds once more and see the beautiful skyline of Wellington- New Zealand's Capital. We didn't see any dolphins following behind, but we did see some interesting individuals on the ship (these characters included the couple from Europe that backed their van into us at Slope Point on the South Island).

The next day we visited Te Papa- New Zealand's National Museum- which was 5 floors, free, and very unique. There were so many exhibits, including an exhibit that let you "experience" an earthquake. You could also pay to experience bungee jumping virtually, but seeing as we experienced the real deal, we decided against it. 

Many people describe Wellington as New Zealand's version of San Francisco. Even though we've never visited San Fran, we could see why! The streets were narrow, winding, and CRAZY! The city was beautiful, but the driving was super intense! 

Onto Highway 45- Surf highway, Egmont National Park, and New Plymouth!
