Day 1 - Arriving at Akaroa

rain 5 °C

Arrived in Christchurch to rain and 5 degrees - brrrr. Collected our rental and headed straight for Akaroa. On the way it was snowing - pretty exciting for us Aucklanders - albeit only very lightly. Our accommodation - Akaroa Waterfront Motels - very comfortable and prime position next to the harbour. 2pm by the this time so went in search of food. Found The Trading Rooms and feasted upon Blue Cod Fish & Chips washed down by a bottle of French Chablis - ah yes, now we feel like we are on holiday. After lunch, the rain has cleared a bit so we went for a stroll around the town. What a beautiful place this is - snow on the hills above the harbour makes it as pretty as a picture. A bit of R&R back at our accomodation and we will head out for a meal soon to sample some more of the local fare.

One more sleep

Watch this space over the next two weeks and see what we find in the beautiful South Island.
