We drove from Blenheim to Havelock, which is a small town at the end of Pelorus Sound. Just outside of Havelock, we went on a short walk, which we all really enjoyed (the kids because they got out of the car and us because it kept the kids from mutiny). We then drove along Queen Charlotte Drive to Picton, which is a town at the end of Queen Charlotte Sound. Picton has a port with a terminal for the ferry that crosses the Cook Strait between the North and South Islands of New Zealand.
The drive was stunning. The weather was perfect. We enjoyed another stunning spot of New Zealand (we should get a commission from NZ tourism for the shameless promotion).
