One of the most picturesque places we visited on our trip was Picton, New Zealand. This little seaport town is located near the head of the Queen Charlotte Sound and has less than 5,000 residents. The population swells dramatically when the cruise ships sail into port. Much of the town’s ‘industry’ is based on tourism, so there are a number of businesses whose livelihood depends on the regular influx of tourist dollars. Winter was approaching when we visited, so our was one of the last cruise ships for the season. Nevertheless, we had a gorgeous day for a walk around the harbor with our British tour guide who worked for a Canadian tour company in this small New Zealand town!
