New Zealand: Interislander Ferry and Marlborough

Okay, okay.  One more post after today and our month in New Zealand will be wrapped up.

Jon and I have wanted to visit the famous Marlborough wine region since our first time in New Zealand eight years ago.  But time never permitted (or pregnancy), so we’d never gotten the chance.  We were determined to go on this trip, and it was basically heaven.  We took the Interislander Ferry between the North and South Islands, which we’d also never done before.  It was a beautiful and relaxing trip.  We tried to take a couple of photos on deck, but Adelaide wasn’t really feeling photogenic that afternoon.

From the ferry terminal we picked up our rental car, tried navigating a manual car on the wrong side of the road, and headed out to some vineyards.  It was seriously such a picturesque retreat for our little family of three.  So often our travel revolves around Jon’s work, so it was nice to have him all to ourselves.

We rented a cottage at the sweetest bed and breakfast, and ironically enough the cottage’s name was “Adelaide’s Barn“.  I can’t rave enough about this place.  If you ever find yourself in Marlborough (which I highly suggest), make sure you stay here.

I love this little girl and my sweet little family so much.  It’s simultaneously maddening and amazing to travel with her and explore things through her eyes.

And the wine certainly helps.
