Cook Strait

Cook Strait separates North and South Islands and is connected by ro-ro ferry. The first bit of the voyage is through narrow passages out to the open sea.

I thought the White Cliffs of Dover were pretty heart-warming to come home to, but this is a bit more picturesque. But the old country does reach out to you; look carefully at this....

The old name is still visible! The 'Pride of Cherbourg'!

I read a long time ago that re-naming a ship was unlucky. Actually it is a common marketing strategy. The history of the Kaitaki is fascinating.
