Akaroa & the Banks Peninsula
Gorgeous. Wonderful shuttle – more like an enthusiastic tour with stops at Little River which has a great cafe and general store, a photo op of the harbour and on the way back Barry’s Bay for cheese tasting (and buying). There seems to be a marked u-bend of life effect with bus drivers- all over the hill, very happy, friendly and even quite caring (aw). Tired from a long day of touring and dolphin swimming. More to come!!
The last photo is my reason for normally wearing sunnies- can’t open my eyes without!
I had a lovely chat with a couple from Texas on the way back – they are loving New Zealand as much as I am but sadly only have 2 weeks here. Difficult to get away and I am so very thankful that I could (by quitting my job and having adequate money).
