... und wieder ans Meer

Und wieder mal sind wir nach einem Regentag bei (fast) strahlendem Sonnenschein aufgewacht. Zumindest Waren heute morgen die Berge sichtbar, die wir am Tag zuvor nur in Wolken erahnen konnten. Und auch die abwechslungsreiche Landschaft konnten wir auf unserer kurvenreichen Fahrt zum Meer...

Dusky Dolphins in Kaikoura

Kaikoura lies on a peninsula that juts out into the Pacific Ocean. It's waters and geological nature have a few characteristics that make it New Zealand's Premier marine wildlife destination. Its Shoreline runs very close to a vast and extremely deep underwater canyon. It is also the hub of...

Seals Gone Wild in Kaikoura

As we drove the 140km or so down the coast, we began to get a taste of the insane, awe-inspiring beauty of the South Island. Lush green countryside, within the backdrop of alpine, snow-capped mountains on our right, with bright Emerald Ocean, beach cliffs to our left. Most of the conversation...

A load of seals

We left our campsite this morning and headed south for a while to Kaikoura as we had read that you could go on a whale watching tour which you could see, well whales obviously, as well as dolphins and other animals as well. On the way we stopped briefly at a lookout point from where we saw...

Seals!

My morning seal-swim got cancelled because it wasn't sunny enough (the seals get too warm on the rocks in the sunshine, after returning from long hunting trips with bellies full of food, so they're much more likely to be in and out of the water if it's a warmish day), but luckily the cloud...

All things marine-related!

Caught my first Magic bus to Kaikoura today. It was a pretty painless trip, our driver Lisa was good fun, giving us some commentary on the places we went past (including Cheviot, which we had a rest stop at) and playing some good-to-bad-to-awful music on her ipod over the coach speakers! We...

Having a whale of a time!

Day - 11 Saturday 2nd May 2009 Up at 06:30 on a brisk morning on the Pacific Coast, to be ready for the 10 – 15 minute walk down the road and around the corner to the Whale Watch base. I wasn't expecting the view that greeted me as I stepped out, as when we'd arrived yesterday, it had...

Moving north to start with.

Day - 10 Friday 1st May 2009 A rather lazy start today, but we felt we'd earned a lie in after all the travelling and early mornings, and we knew we wouldn't get to Kaikoura from Christchurch in time for a boat trip out to the see the whales, though a flight might have been possible, but that...

Week End

Our first trip out of Christchurch by car. We picked up a little Suzuki Swift, the last car available, as it was a stick shift. Last minute bookers who can only drive automatics, walk or take the bus. The route took us through the Waipara Valley noted for regional Sauvignon Blanc. Literally...
