Day 34 29.8.2011 – The tunnel and the ferry - Distance Travelled: 1881km

Wellington →Cook Straight → Picton

Hello all,

Today we went off to find the location that we missed on Mt Victoria, with the help of the new book I got yesterday with the updated more detailed locations from the movies. With great success we found the tunnel Frodo looked down and sensed the black rider coming for him. It was cool to see this as it’s just a random tree tunnel and if you look to the left you can see and hear a small part of Wellington!!

Then we headed off to get the ferry down to South Island! We were some of the first vehicles on as we got there early and were put behind the tankers.  

It was a 3 hour ferry journey and we saw there was a cinema on board, so we watched X-Men: First Class, which is a great movie! After it was over we were heading into the coves at the top of South Island approaching Picton. The coastline was misty and very reminiscent of scenes from a movie that being many movies, as New Zealand is showing us how versatile it is when it comes to its varied landscape.

We got off the ferry and the campsite was within sight so an easy trip over. Now to explore South Island!!!

This is me signing off...J
