Day Two

Today we left Blenheim for Kaikoura.

At Kaikoura Rail Station.

We went on a tour of the place. This is at the look out point. We went to see some seals and there was only one there. Went to South Bay and a Lavender Farm.
It was about 27 deg c this day.

At the Lavender Farm.

Momma was in heaven!

There was something interesting about this type of tree. The branches..... I'll let mom explain later.

Lavender farm. (that sold Lavender icecream which Mom and Peter had).

The beach across the road from our hotel (about 30 seconds away).

From the look out point.

At the rail station.

Totally Jealous. Wish I could come see NZ. Looks like fun!

It's Karen from Charmings. New Zealand looks just as beautiful as I have imagined. Of course we all have had glimpses from the Lord of the Rings movies, but one wonders how much of that is special effects, not too much apparently!
I have family in AU and NZ - my mom was a war bride. I visited AU when I was 18 - eons ago, LOL! But I've never been to NZ although my second cousin lives there on a horse farm I believe, I'll have to check with my mom. Now that I've talked your ear off, I'll let you go! Thanks for the prize suggestion!
