        ... behind that! It amazes me where truck drivers take their big trucks. Akaroa is the place where the French landed and set up a settlement. Accordingly it is renowned as having a strong French influence; unfortunately I can see very little of this and put it down that it is still populated by Kiwis and not French people. A couple of positives though is that there are some nice flowers around and we have had our second best fush n ...

        ... be so close to these enormous creatures. We had a further two sightings which is apparently quite rare. Each time the whale stayed on the surface for a few minutes, blowing out of their blowhole then arching before diving and giving us the classic tail view. We also enjoyed the company of a large pod of playful energetic Dusky Dolphins performing impressive acrobatics. We went close to the rocks to see Fur Seals with their pups and saw several Albatross flying above us. It was ...

        Thought for the day from, okay, I won't say it. "Of course I talk to myself. Sometimes I need expert advice." No visual needed, but I put one up anyway.

        The destination was Christchurch, but we anchored off Akaroa, a beautiful little town well south of the city, about a 90 minute drive. Christchurch had been devastated by 5 earthquake in 14 months over 2010 and 2010. We were led to believe that it had thus lost its port facilities. Not ...

        ... kept on going, because the ride down to Akaroa was a long one. After passing Christchurch and driving through badlands for some time, I entered the Banks Peninsula, the remains of an huge, extincted volcano. Parts of the volcano have been flooded and became the Akaroa Harbor. The town of Akaroa is famous for the only french settlement in New Zealand - at least, the remains. Some of the houses are left over from that times ...
