Number 13: reaching Aotearoa’s Te Wai Pounamu

Interislander Ferry, Tory Channel, Te Wai Pounamu, South Island, New Zealand, Aotearoa

New Zealand’s South Island is known as “Te Wai Pounamu“, which in Maori means “the greenstone waters” for the greenstone found on lands surrounded by the waters of the South Pacific Ocean. On board the Interislander ferry from Wellington, the journey across Cook Strait intensified my anticipation of visiting the South Island for the first time. As the ferry reached the waters of the South Island, the low dark clouds and sheets of mist here in Tory Channel heightened the mystery: what lay ahead after the ferry docked in Picton?
