    Campervan and Whales

    ... classic tail as the whale dived (they stay on the surface for about 10 minutes between dives, surfacing every half hour or so). They returned and I hopped in for Sam. Tash didn't want to go again as she was feeling a bit queasy so just Ed and I went. The views were great and we saw a pod of Hector's dolphins just off Kaikoura point. Then spotted our first whale, who dived quite quickly after we had seen him. Then we headed towards ...

    ... And despite the signs and warnings about getting to close, some tourists taunt the seals and then scream when they lurch towards them. We walk out to the rocks then up to the viewpoint and round the peninsula. The walk is really pretty but my feet are sore by the time we return, 4 hours later.
    That evening we play piano and stay up being sociable until the wee hours.
    I loved Kaikoura, wish I could have stayed longer, and the Albatross hostel was really well run.

    ... close to the slumbering pair. The bay we were walking around was a pretty one, with oystercatchers in a big group on the beach. However, the scene might have been very different a few decades ago. This part of Kaikoura was important to the whaling industry. The larger bones had no sale value so were often used as fence posts. A huge rib is still fixed in the ground by the entrance to a farm. At the carpark at the very end of the peninsula, a fidgety seal was lying just ...

    ... abandoned our visit to the Queenstown region. To travel through rain to mountains engulfed in clouds did not seem worth the effort. Instead we visited some hot springs in the eastern mountains and then headed back to the coast. The rains were at time torrential. Autumn had arrived after several months of drought. We've spent a couple nights in Akaroa, which sits beside a very large inlet and was created when the sea flooded two volcanic craters. It is the only French settlement in ...
