The South Island of New Zealand beckons off the Wellington Harbor headlands

The South Island of New Zealand beckons off the Wellington Harbor headlands.

You can see it from here, but it’s a (sometimes rough) 3 hour ferry ride from the center of Wellington through the Cook Strait.

We’ll have to make that ride sometime just to see it up close.
