A late start and a very good run to Blenheim as the traffic has now dissipated. Still quite a few traffic cops and blustery but fine conditions.
Due to the late departure we had to minimize our stops and were very glad to get to the Lugano in Blenheim just before dark. The setting sun gave us quite a few visibility problems on the last hour of the journey as the helmet visors were covered in sea spray and bugs. Terrifying.
