We didn’t do a lot of sight-seeing today, mostly due to wind and rain all afternoon and evening. We are on the ferry to the North Island tomorrow, sailing at 1pm from Picton to Wellington. It’s three hours across Cook Strait; hopefully the weather will have improved by then!
We said goodbye to the lovely little Kina Beach camp site and set off back to Nelson. We weren’t going to stop but there was a kite festival in the park, so we had a quick look, bought some (very) mini doughnuts before going back to the van for lunch.
At Havelock we turned off in the rain onto the Pukenu Hill road, which has a very steep climb to the Moenui Lookout.
We drove straight through Picton; we’ll have a look at it tomorrow, todays mission was to find a nice camp-site with nice showers. We did that, at the Waikawa Bay Holiday Park, and we got a nice view of Picton Marina thrown in.
