PotW – Waterfront, Picton

London Quay, Picton
For some reason, most people never stop in Picton – they drive off the ferry and head south, or purposely arrive with barely time to check in for their ferry on departure.
The ones who do this with kids are totally missing out.
For our last big South Island holiday, we purposely planned for our last night to be in Picton, so we could waste time at leisure in this gorgeous wee spot. Sadly, it bucketed down with rain, so we were forced indoors for the morning instead.
Between the huge pirate ship to clamber over, the water play area and the beach access, there is also the gorgeous (and cheap!) miniature train, mini golf (not as cheap, but totally cute), along with other opportunities to explore. Parking immediately between the playground and the Interislander terminal is generous and has a 4hr time limit.
There are toilets near the Memorial Arch that leads to the main road, and its not a long walk up the main road to find multiple eateries, and a reasonable sized supermarket.
