Whale-watching (maybe!!)

A travel blog entry by spicerrtw


... due to go this afternoon was cancelled because the seas were too rough.

Monday 3 March

We lay in bed early this morning listening to the waves crashing onto the shingle and wondering if the sea was too heavy for our booked whale watch trip. Arriving at the check-in office our fears were confirmed: all this morning's trips have been cancelled because of rough seas. We have a bit of flexibility in our itinerary so we ...

It was then time to head back towards Christchurch, bound for Akaroa on the Banks Peninsula, to conclude our 'loop' of southern South Island and (finally) collect our new pride and joy. In doing so, we took pity on a lonely hitchhiker (Uli from Germany) who offered good company for the three hour journey. It was actually win-win as Uli shouted us lunch and offered what ...
