Our blogging friends in NZ, Marja and William, took us sight seeing on the morning we were leaving them to continue down the East Coast of the South Island of NZ to Timaru.
They showed us this beautiful pebble beach, where William goes fishing.
They took us high up the hills overlooking Christchurch and the Canterbury Plain all the way to the Southern Alps.
On the other side of the hill we could see Lyttleton Harbour.
Then we drove around the edge of the harbour and through the villages.
We visited the popular Sumner Beach, where only a few days before an earthquake had shaken more of the cliffs down into the sea.
We said goodbye to our new friends, who pointed us in the direction of Timaru and off we went.We found our accommodation, Glendeer Lodge.
It was a very comfortable B&B.
There were deer in their garden.
And sheep down the road. "Eyes Right"
Views from near the lodge.
Next stop Oamaru.
