One day I was scrolling through my friends blogs when I came across some beautiful photos on Marja's blog. They were of Akaroa in New Zealand, one of her favourite places. I thought I would love to go there one day. So I did! We were so lucky because Marja and William showed us the places for good photos.
View from a lookout
The little township of Akaroa nestles on the edge of the bay. It was originally settled by a french community and there is still evidence of that in the village. We drove down the windy road into the main street.
We walked through the town with our new friends. There were lots of eateries as it is quite a tourist destination.
There were many quaint little cottages with nice gardens.
We walked along the esplanade to the end where we ate at a restaurant on the edge of the bay.
On the way home we drove up the steep hill to Heritage Park Lookout. The scenery was just beautiful.
A fun place for photographers.
