So today was our journey day down to the South Isle. Leaving the ultra comfy B&B bed behind was hard, but we got ourselves sorted and made our watly ro the ferry. We stopped by the Te Papa museum again to catch the newly opened Anzac 'Gallipoli - the scale of our war exhibit'. This year is the 100th anniversay of the disasterous Gallipoli assault, and so the whole country is gearing uo for this years Anzac day.

We had to queue most of an hour to get in, but it was worth it. The exhibit did a fantastic job of capturing the horror and pointless waste of life while being respectful and acknowledging the heroism and sacrifice involved. The exhibit was done with Weta and so has several hyper detailed models. Including several twice life size models of people that had all the body hair and stubble individually defined.

We could't have asked for better weather on the ferry crossing; though it's no less windy than Wellington. We got some great views. Landing at Picton we have driven to Kaikoura. Tomorrow we have to be early to make our 7:15 whale watching tour, before we drive down most of the west coast of the island.
