We are in Picton, at the top of the North Island, waiting to cross on the ferry to Wellington. It seems strange that I will be meeting my penpal in just a few hours after writing to her for so many years. Should be fun. We've had a great time. Saw some awesome scenery along the coast and got some close-up shots of seals. The country has every kind of scenery imaginable, so we have ocean, glaciers, meadows, sheep, mountains, sheep, cool churches, sheep. Oh yeah, they have a lot of sheep here. They also raise a lot of deer and elk on ranches. Also saw the infamous Bra Fence (you'll just have to see the picture if you want to know more). On the North Island we're hoping to catch some Maori culture and the Glow Worm caves. Should be cool. Talk to you all again soon.
