Dream chaser – Day 1: Here we go! We have driven from Christchurch to Kaikoura, then to Picton; it started out as a perfect day with high clouds, then thunderstorm with heavy rain developed as we arrive at Picton. Checked in at Habour view Motel with a beautiful view of the Picton harbour! Ferry ride is scheduled at 12noon tomorrow, then we drive up to Palmerston North. It’s a good start of our adventure!
