We are back in the Marlborough Sounds and it feels good. We arrived at midday today from Lyttelton and are scheduled to start our first expedition from Picton tomorrow. We have a great team on board and are looking forward to exploring this labyrinth of waterways with so many exciting things to do and see.  We spent a quiet afternoon at Blumine Island, enjoyed a great walk to the gun emplacements. The birdlife was special.
