        Today the holiday really starts. In theory we are over jet lag and raring to go.

        Take leave of Christchurch and progress across the Canterbury Plain towards Arthur's Pass and Punakaiki. Weather is even worse, colder and persistent rain. Jennifer has seen the weather forecast for the next few days. Rain, rain and more rain.

        Very lovely welcome at this campsite, even lent me her classes to choose a dad for the night. We chose our spot and the sun was out. We went off for a walk by the river, and then up to the cavern, where if we had been inclined to wait for dark would have seen glow worms... We went to see the pancake rocks and blow ...

We arrived at the Pancakes rocks at Low tide and enjoyed it so much we came back again the next morning at high tide and ...

        ... Greymouth sits at the terminus of the Grey River (surprise!) but from where we we were, we didn't have views of the ocean just yet. After finishing our beer tasting and sampler platter of lamb sliders, hot chips and cheeses, we were back on the road to our next destination an hour away: Punakaiki: Home of the Pancake Rocks. You may already be familiar with the Pancake Rocks as I wrote about them in a previous post when I visited with my mom, but I'll refresh you. The ...

        ... all day and doing some laundry we were knackered when we returned back to Kevin in the early evening. With the rain pelting down we weren't too keen to venture out so had a nice 11 hour sleep! We were up early the next day to catch our ferry down to the South Island. This cost us a ridiculous £130! It may seem a bit early to be heading towards the South Island but everyone we've spoken to has said it's much better. There are definitely loads of activities we're ...
