Day 142 Picton, New Zealand

Well today was a first for me, first time to Picton…..  It is our only stop on the south island of New Zealand.  It was a lovely, very small, town.  Tought to get lost here.  The place is loaded with scenic hiking trails which is how I started my morning.  It’s nice to get a bit of exercise and see some beautiful scenery at the same time.  The rest of the day was spent walking around town and sitting for drinks with friends.  I ran into Allan & Sandra along the way and hung out with them for a while.  We also ran into Ellen & Aart who were also enjoying their day.  It was a very laid back day fro us but after a week of port stops it felt good.  We now have 3 days at sea before we arrive into one of my favotite ports, Sydney, Australia.  Now just hope that the Tasman Sea gives us a smooth crossing….

  2. Hi Jeff,

    your photos of Picton and the sail in down through the sounds brings back some great memories. So enjoying piggy backing on your amazing journey.

    Hoping that the Tasman is being nice to you as I type this.
