Sunday morning we caught the ferry across Cook Strait. Luckily, the sea was calm and the crossing uneventful. It was a beautiful sunny day so we spent a lot of time out on the deck as we cruised through the Marlborough Sounds. The drive from Picton to Nelson was not very far but took quite a while because of some pretty twisting and windy roads. Dan Mackay’s father had kindly allowed us to stay in a granny flat of the house he owns in Nelson.
