Now we are seeing our first glimpses of the North Island. This is Pencarrow Head, south of Wellington, the oldest lighthouses in New Zealand. After a stomach-turning journey across the Cook Strait–I had gotten a little seasick and couldn’t sit or stand up strait for the second hour to hour-and-a-half of the journey. Thankfully, the last third or so of the journey we were in the Wellington harbor, and the water was much calmer. I felt instantly better. It was not my first time on a ferry, but it was my first time feeling that sick on a ferry!
