We are about to leave Wellington on the North Island and make our way across the Cook Straight to Picton on the South Island (New Zealand).
Interisland Ferry (Aratere)
It was a bit cold outside the cabin but the view wasn't to be missed.
We have great seats right in the front with a big window...but, being outside is the best, always the best!
It is nearly summer in New Zealand on this day, November 24, 2012.
The sailboats are out on Wellington Harbour and beautiful.
Wellington Harbour is busy with commercial and leisure boats/ships.
Leisure makes the nicest photo ops!
We will be on our way soon...maybe another 10 minutes or 2:30 p.m. local time.
