Ah, although it may seem like we have been biking in the rain forever, the bike trip was nearly to an end as we had just the very short 33 km (17 miles) into Picton remaining. We cranked that out Sunday morning (again in the rain) and arrived in Picton by noon. We changed into civies and stopped at Le Café (discovered by Sterling and Emi during their trip with a highly recommended vegetarian sandwich and free internet access). From there, we sadly packed the bikes and trailer into a rented Subaru Legacy and headed for Nelson and eventually Kaiteriteri, which is where the “hardship” ended and the luxury (compliments of some extra spending money from David and Judy) began . . . can you say hot tub on a balcony overlooking the ocean? NICE!!! More on Kaiteriteri later . . .
