Cruising Through The Marlborough Sounds…

Directly before Christmas Family Kiwidutch find themselves cruising on the Interisland ferry though the beautiful islands and inlets of New Zealand’s Marlborough Sounds. Located in the very north of the South Island, these Sounds hide many tiny beaches and holiday houses, only a small fraction of those are visible on our route, and only a small fraction are accessible by road. Yachts and boats are the staple mode of transport here, bringing many New Zealanders to quiet, peaceful and stunningly beautiful holiday spots.

I am fairly sure that these dead trees we see are caused by possums.

Evidence of landslips from the quakes in the region and in particular, the November 2016 Kaikoura / Hanmer Springs quake.

Coming close to the heads, and this “exit” to the Cook Straight…
