While in Picton we took the cruise of Queen Charlotte Sound.
The cruise was called The Queen Charlotte Mail Boat Cruise as it was the boat that delivered the mail for many difficult to access places.
There were a few places around the sound where the boat called in to do the deliveries.
We also stopped at Ship Cove where Captain Cook in 1770 called in to make repairs to his ship. He stopped at this cove several times in his three voyages to New Zealand, in fact it was this place where he spent most of his time in New Zealand spending a total of 168 days.
