It's always me in these photos much to my displeasure (you can see that) but enjoy the bush at Franz Josef
back in that carpark there was a very friendly Kea. Loved being photographed. They pinch anything and there are always notices not to feed them.
We drove into Okarito - my very favourite place. Always inspiring.
Here I am on Okarito Beach - I collected for myself a beautiful big stone - I figured that I had plenty of space in my suitcase for a few stones.
When we left Reefton (forgot to take any pics but it was good to catch up with Ian's rellies - and it looked the same, we drove to Christchurch over the Otira Gorge. Called into Jackson's Tavern for a very nice home made pie - there was lots of other people there enjoying pies and beers in the middle of the day.
Here is the viaduct over the Otira Gorge - just like being in Italy. I haven't been over here since I was a teenager.
