New Zealand 2017

Akaroa, 12-13 December

 

 
  The road from the west coast up to Arthurs Pass has been improved greatly since we were there in 1972. This section was then gravel, carved out of the side of the hill. †
 
  Like all the rivers flowing east from the mountains, the Waimakariri River has a wide gravel bed. *

  Akaroa harbour from the beach. †
  Akaroa wharf. *
  The day we left Akaroa, there were two cruise ships in port. It was obvious that the little town was going to be very busy. *
  *
  Heading for Christchurch airport, we used the Summit Road with some nice sea views. *
  *
  There was a spectacular sunset flying from Christchurch back to Sydney. *

There are photos from Mangawhai Heads, Wellington and Nelson on our Other Places page.
