Pointing out some more pictures

Sorry I'm behind but I still have a lot of pictures to finish up NZ. :)

This is inside the ferry that took us from Wellington (North Island) to Picton (South Island). The entrance to the ferry was surprisingly nice. The outside looked like a cruise ship. If I hadn't given it away already you may have thought it was inside a mall just by looking at the picture.

I took a short walk on the top level of the ferry and found a couple containers carrying cows by surprise. The tops are open and the cows are kind just smooshed together so that they don't really have anywhere to move. They're not hurt or anything, but it's not exactly traveling in comfort.

When we got to Nelson that night, I checked into my hostel and met Cassandra from Canada. She walked with me to the store to get some wine and on the way out we found a house with some wacked out decoration in front of it. Some kind of alien sign or beacon or something. So I took her picture next to one of the antenna things.

The next day I did the boat/hike/bus day trip to Abel Tasman National Park where the boat taxi driver pointed out to us a location called Split Apple Rock. I'm sure you can see why it's been named that. I think this is an especially cool picture with the bird silhouettes.

This is one of the multitude of stunning views I found while hiking Abel Tasman. It's difficult to describe in words.

That night in Nelson, there was a face paint and roast party for the hostel that we were staying at (Paradiso). So here's Cassandra with 2 guys that also put on face paints that evening. I have no idea what they are supposed to be. I guess this is where you learn the lesson of "don't drink and facepaint".

The next day, on the way to Greymouth, the driver stopped at an area called the Pancake Rocks. Layers of rock built up on eachother and eventually got flattened over time and became this way.
