We just left our Serious Fun group and our guide Lynette. So SAD!
Yesterday we traveled from Abel Tasman to Nelson/Marlbourough Sounds. We did a little shopping in Nelson and then headed to a few wineries in the Marlbourough Sounds area. SO MUCH FUN. We got a little silly with all the wine and liquor tasting. We traveled on to our hotel which was amazing. It was right on the water and it was a whole floor with 6 or 7 bedroooms and 3 or 4 bathrooms. There was a balcony with a view of the sounds. It sucked that we were only there one night but oh well. Lynette made an amazing salmon dinner and then we watched Austin Powers. Not very active or anything but tons of fun and a really nice last day.
We left early this morning after Lynette and Michele took a dip in the 50 degree water. We took the ferry from Picton to Wellington and then we were abandoned by the rest of the group in front of our hotel. Although they tried to get us to come along for the rest of the 10 days of the trip.
Now we're here for another four days. I think we'll be heading to the Te Papa Museum, maybe a hike, shopping, water in some form knowing Michele.....and then home. I can't believe the trip is almost over. I will be glad to see everyone, but going home...sigh.Posted by nuala at November 30, 2005 04:50 PM
