    ... we would be fishing at) and instantly Emma had a bite. A big Red Sea perch was the first catch of the day shortly followed by me catching one too. We was apparently fishing for blue cod and after both of us catching a few smaller sea perch which we threw back in Emma caught 2 big blue cods which Mark gutted on the spot and then cleaned them ready for us to take home.

    ... into town we walked back alongside the beach and Moira spotted a pod of Hectors Dolphin just off the beach. They were moving quite fast and leaping from the water. Where was my telephoto lens? In the campervan. Can't win them all. We also saw a number of Albatross, not the large Wandering Albatross but a much smaller one.

    ... in the mountains and it felt like Marlin was driving in the Indy 500. We made it safe but I was white knuckled! We made a stop off at a "visitors drive". AMAZABALLS!!! See pics attached. We stopped for lunch at a local cafe and shared some fish and chips and a lamb burger. Holy yum! We made it to Kaikoura and the trip was great. We checked into our hotel. Very modern and sleek. It was warm out and there is not ...

    180km drive from Christchurch along some of the most beautiful roads you can imagine! Think of Lord of the rings and you can imagine what you are driving through. Kaikoura is only a small place in the east coast, around 3220 people or so live here, mainly farmers. But we go here for the spear fishing! Diving down in the dark ocean, tackling weeds that are about 15cm thick but around 20 foot long, not knowing what's behind you, to the side of you or even beneath ...
