New Zealand Day 7: Traveling to Nelson

We took the Interislander Ferry from the North Islands thru the Sounds to the South Island.  From Picton we drove to Nelson.  On the way we stopped for the toilet.  There was a beautiful old church and a pub in this little group of buildings.  Well, you know me I grab my camera and start taking pictures.  

While doing this I got snuck up on.  All of  a sudden I turn and there is this old and very drunk dude standing next to me. I say dude, but he was probably 60 with long grey hair past his shoulders and he says:

Him:  I'm the preacher at this church, were you looking for a sermon?

Me:  No we were just using the toilet.

Him:  Where are you from?

Me:  Texas

Him (staring at my boobs):  I always heard things were bigger down in Texas, now I know why.

The conversation went down hill from here.  Offering drinks, coffee, anything to get us to stay around.  We hurried and piled into the car and finished our trip to Nelson.  We had a lovely dinner and packed it in for the night.  But my "Texas sized boobs" were the highlight of the day.
