Marlborough Sounds Walkway

Summer Stock Sunday. Meme
There is a wonderful walkway around most of the Marlborough Sounds starting at Ship's Cove where Captain Cook landed a long time ago, the walkway winds its way slowly to Nydia Bay, a distance of about 40 km I guess, a long way anyway.
We just happened to be at Resolution Bay and decided to walk a very short distance on the trail through the bush enjoying the wonderful scenery along the way. The trail meanders through farm land as well as the forest, so you are often wandering among sheep or cattle.
A great way to enjoy a cool winters day, you soon warm up.
Check out how others fill their fun times.

How cool was that winter's day? Those in the know have pointed out that Sweden and NZ are rather similar in terms of climate, culture and so on. Here of course it's summer - although somewhat cool in fact. About 17C today.
