Picton is the port on the North of the South Island where the ferry ejects folks from the South of North Island. Ahem....

Tiny little town, but very pretty. There's not much to do here, other than head to Marlborough which is one of New Zealand's most famous wine producing areas. We enjoyed an afternoon tour around some of the local wineries. I think Dog and I were a little bermused by it all. Overtones of gooseberry ? Complex fruit finish ? Who are they trying to kid ? Where's my pint ?

We headed over towards the Abel Tasman National Park next for some kayak action ( coming soon ! ). The journey was though some awesome scenery.
