Journal Entry:
Not a very exciting day. It was a bright sunny day and I spent most of it inside. Spent the morning on the phone. First looking to buy a dive computer - I was so impressed by the ones I used in the Poor Knights. Then I arranged a ferry to the South Island and lodging in Picton for tomorrow. Rest of the morning and early afternoon was spent figuring out my next couple stops on the South Island and doing laundry.

When I finally left the hostel I wandered around enjoying the sun. Also got a roll of film developed (from my new camera, mostly sailing in Pitwater and a few from Tasmania and the North Island). Walked around until I was good and lost then spent the rest of the afternoon getting found. I was going to go out for St Patrick's day, but at the end couldn't bother to go by myself, and ended up sitting in front of the TV instead.
