Picturesque crossing: Wellington to Picton

Sunshine at Wellington ferry wharf
Cook Strait between Wellington and Picton is notoriously fickle-weathered but on 30th December it was as flat as a millpond. I was pleased to have decided to spend a night in Picton instead of driving straight on to Nelson (Jazz Festival), as Picton is picturesque and the Jugglers Rest backpackers wonderfully quirky.

Light rain alternated with sunny spells as the afternoon passed resultign in spectacular rainbows over the hills.
