We headed back to Picton Early afternoon taking the scenic drive through Queen Charlotte Sounds, although to be honest I didn't see much scenery as I was constantly moving the steering wheel from left to right at 20km an hour, trying to make sure we didn't drive off the edge.
To get an idea of how convoluted the Sounds are (If anyone wants to know what a sound is - it is similar to a fiord.) in Marlborough Sounds, Pelorus Sound is 42km long but has 379km of Shoreline. That should give you an idea of how much fun it is driving along one of them.
As we were back in Picton on Friday, we decided to change our ferry to Saturday afternoon, as the bad weather was affecting anything that could be done.
We had Curry Chips in Seumus's Irish Pub (they were ok, but nothing special) and a pint/Archers aqua Alco pop.
It is now Saturday Morning. The rain has not stopped since about 7pm last night and we head to the North Island at 1.15pm

Speak to you all soon

Paul and Ciara
