Stunning Picton Wharf on a late winter's day


Last Friday morning we were on a mission to drive to Nelson in the South Island of New Zealand. From where we are it is a 6 1/2 hour drive to Wellington, then another 2 hours on the Interislander ferry then another 2 hours to our destination.

After a busy weekend while on the ferry back to Wellington this is the sight we saw of Picton - I think it's a perfect example of how stunning our scenery here is.

That is a stunning photo. I don't remember Picton being this beautiful when we passed through. The lighting is really interesting.

That's quite a long trip; the 2 hour ferry ride must have been a nice break. Wow, what a destination! Gorgeous!

It's stunning indeed! Love it when water look still on a cloudy day. It's pretty calm.

Wow, that looks stunning. It actually looks like something that's been painted :)

Captivating scene; the lighting and clouds definitely set a somber mood against the greenery and water.

Maori Rock Carvings

One from when we were in Taupo earlier this year is this Maori Rock Carving which is only accessible via water on a boat. We booked a chart...
