We re now in Picton , South Island after a pleasant drive south and a few days in Wellington . Peter Thone George accommodated us in his house on the sounds and showed us around using his launch and now we are camping again . Tomorrow we plan to start exploring . South Island is fantastically beautiful and quite unspoilt . We will drive the Moldsworth trail which rises to nearly 5000 ft and is the largest and highest hill station in NZ . Much of the journey is on gravel roads and is only passable in the summer
