March 22 Picton (Day 177)

We drove through the famous vineyards of Marlborough today on our way to Picton, the ferry port town at the top of the South Island.

The vineyards trailed off to the foothills of Mount Richmond Forest Park across the Wairau Valley and the Wairau River.

We made it to Picton with enough time in the day to walk into the main town area and found some dinner at the local Irish Pub! An after dinner walk took us to the picturesque port.

The palm trees lend a tropical feel to the port and the weather was nice enough to imagine it is tropical here!
