Havelock to Picton

We left the Havelock camping ground around 9.30am it was 20 degrees,looked like we were in for a nice day. Decided to have a bit of a look around the Mariner,then took a walk up the street,slight drizzle.

By the time we actually left Havelock at 10.55,there was only the odd spot of rain.The sun was out 21 degree ,beautiful,there was even a rainbow to complete the view.

 Somewhere over the rainbow...Havelock

We headed over to Kenopura which looked like dairy country,once again we are on a very windy road which seemed to go on forever.Stopped at Te Mahia for coffee,started drizzling again 11.45am & 19 degrees.

We arrived at Picton around 12.50 the temperature was now 21 degrees  & the sun was out with the odd spot of rain still.

View from the lookout showing Ferry Terminal for the Inter Island Ferry which travels between  Picton & Wellington,three ships are used for this service.

Had lunch then booked into the Top 10 which has been the most expensive place so far $40,was quite nice,it was about a 15 minute walk to town.

This is where we had lunch the "Flying Haggis",the sign below was hanging near the bar.

We had a look at the Mariner,had missed all the cruisers,but the day ended up being nice.
