As we docked in Picton, we commented on the fact that it looks very much like an Alaskan fishing village! We could have been anywhere on the Alaskan Peninsula (even the temperature was a bit chilly at 59 degrees.) Thankfully, it warmed up as the day progressed! We arrived early and the ship would sail away on the tide at 2:00 pm, so a quick start was required in order to see the town in our customary, leisurely manner. We walked into town. As we made our way to High Street, we passed the Edwin Fox Maritime Museum. The Edwin Fox was a 19th century sailing ship. She is the ninth oldest ship in the world. Once restored, she will become a floating maritime museum. We walked through town, bought some wine, stopped for coffee and then headed over to the boat harbor where a market was selling craft items. A little more shopping, some picture taking, and it was time to head back to the ship. All-in-all, a very sedate day! Here are some photos:
Now, we will sail across the Tasman sea to Sydney.
