McCormick House

Season Preparation and Local Attractions

Enjoying the Beautiful Marlborough Sounds

Greetings from Carl and Jeanne at Picton, at the top of the South Island.

We have been busy preparing McCormick House for the busy Summer season ahead.
With warm North Westerly conditions, gardening is a great sunny option.
Our local wood pigeons are feasting on local Kowhai trees.
Tuis and bellbirds are busily preparing for nesting.
Pukekoes are to be seen on our daily walks to Waikawa.

More to Do and Enjoy at Picton

There is a newly completed track in Picton, out on the ‘Snout’ peninsula.
It was made possible with a huge effort being made by our local mountain bike community.
It is well graded for both walking and mountain biking, takes about an hour and a half, each way.
Jeanne and I  walked the new track  for lunch recently and were treated with magnificent vistas
in every direction.McCormick House

We look forward to seeing you all here soon.
