Day 31 – Wellington/Blenheim

Posted: December 2, 2012 in Travel

Fierce storms overnight and blustery winds throughout our stay in Wellington led us into fearing the worst as we headed for the 8.00am ferry to the South Island. In the event, the waters were as calm as a lily pond for all of the 3 hour crossing.
We are staying overnight in Blenheim at a very swish hotel that is part of the Mondrians chain and looks very Philipe Stark. This evening we had another group meal, which several of us had dreaded after the ghastly Maori evening. However, we had a superb evening. We cruised the river as the sun set over the most beautiful scenery in the heart of

the wine producing region. The food was also excellent
