Due South

I leave the North Island. The ferry hits a rough sea. Well, it is actually the other way round. Sea sickness grabs my stomach. I stay on deck, use the steady horizon and the fresh air as remedy. Then we enter the calm waters of the Marlborough Sounds.

… the ship glides along barren hills …

Image

N-14-698

… and an occasional house by the beach …

N-14-722

The engines vibrate the deck …

Image

… that shines brightly in the southern sun.

Image

The evidence of human endeavours …

… finds its way to the global network.

Image

The hills come closer, …

Image

… as do the boats: Big boats, …

Image

… small boats …

N-14-700

… and boats that look like submarines.

Image

I land in Southland.
