20/02 Wellington Via the Interislander Ferry to Nelson (South Island - SI) – 4,931kms (116kms travelled today).
Feb 20, 2020
An early start to catch the ferry and then an awesome ride to Nelson. The day started cool and overcast with low cloud, but we finally got some sun and a comfortable afternoon and our remaining two couples who got into Christchurch and stayed at Kaikoura last night joined us to continue the rest of the journey. They will be in a 4-wheel vehicle which could be handy.
Weaving our way through the islands and one of the sister ferries is in the distance having passed us.
Nice lunch spot. Delicious little inlet with a salty smell to accompany our lunch.
On the way to Nelson.
And some more and yep a lot of low-level cloud.
Still coming and check out the driftwood just dropped by a previous flood / tide.
Lots of logging and farming on the way and beautiful sights.
Yummy houses in the distance in Nelson.
And our accommodation for the next 2 nights. Yummy … our own bathrooms and lots of other comfortable stuff at the Admirals Motor Inn 26 Waimea Road Nelson.
