Up early and sad to leave this beautiful place for a four hour drive to Wellington to hand in the hire car, meet the National MS office crew and collect my Rachmaninoff Scores which I left in Auckland. Stayed at the 747 Motel - OK
Another Early start at 8am for Wellington Picton Ferry but surprise, another Russian Taxi driver.
Its blowing a hooley outside the harbour but big plus, the bags are checked through to Christchurch.
Paul films the Marlborough sound and the Senic Train Journey.
Pleasant surprise the bags are there – and a quick shuttle to the Riccerton Village Motel in preparation for the day return trip to Greymouth and the Trans Alpine rail journey tomorrow.
