      Our NZ holiday is almost over but we had time to squeeze in a weekend on this beautiful peninsula, steeped in history. The town of Akaroa has some French style architecture and many French street names (as explained on the second photo caption). It is a very pretty town and we arrived on a lovely day. The second afternoon and night it rained but that just meant we could visit a Museum and have an afternoon nap, quite rare on this ...

      ... city with these familiar fancies but at the same time quite sad that it's all out the side of a container. We had lunch in a little container too. Even the banks were in these containers which was quite novel to see.

We chose the latter as the money goes towards helping rebuild the area and lets face it - they rely ...

      ... Susie" on it with the pen provided. I then had my turn and took a photo!

      Walking back to catch the tender we came across a rock and crystal shop. Now we have some specimens of NZ rocks and a couple of small pieces of Kauri gum, apparently the kauri amber is not old enough to be called amber as it is still considered soft.

      Now we're back on board and thinking about a cup of tea...but no cakes....maybe something else ...
