Wellington to Picton & Blenheim, South Island - Day 71

Windy Wellington

16 °C

After staying in another paid for campsite last night called Camp Wanui, which was cheap at sixteen dollars and close to Wellington, we drove in Wellington and had a look around. It's not called Windy Wellington for nothing! We only had a time for a walk around the harbour area, but being overcast and very windy, we didn't mind too much.

The ferry from Wellington to Picton was a steady and easy 3 hour journey. We went out on deck when it wasn't raining to look at the scenery and there were some lovely rainbows.

At the other side we travelled a short distance towards Blenheim for our camp site by the sea, and on the way we saw some more funny post boxes - this time with faces and made from the outboard motor of a boat?!

It's noticeably colder here on the South Island, and because we want to keep tent on the back rather than sleep in a stuffy van, we have decided to wear our thermal leggings and long sleeved tops to sleep in...I hope it's not too cold to sleep!
