The Journey Begins....

Today began at an early 6:50am (well early for a sunday anyway!). I got out of bed, had breakfast, washed up and threw the remaining things in the car and was on the road by 7:30am. The drive to Picton went well with only a brief stop in Kaikoura to use the toilet, then battle through some rain and finally arrive in Picton about 11:30am. Some lunch in Picton then join the lines of cars waiting to board the 1:15pm sailing of the interislander. I began the sailing in the kids area but shortly went outside and sat on the sun deck for the remainder of the journey (level 10 of the Kaitaki). The sun was so strong but the wind was bitterly cold! I arrived in Wellington about 4:30pm, disembarked and headed for Hutt Park Top 10 where I setup camp which will be home for the next couple of weeks.
