    ... boarded a rather old van,....and began our adventure.
    We drove on the OTHER side of the mountain,.....going straight up,....and adventure doesn't even BEGIN to describe the ride. Adrienne, who sometimes gets car sick, and is afraid of heights was in for the ride of her life. We all were! The small one lane dirt road that we travelled up, hugged curves so tightly, I thought we'd blow a tire. If you dared to look down,....well,....trust me,....you ...

    ... our walk along the waterfront towards the pier. Following the little pictures of Dory (the blue and yellow fish from the film Nemo) we headed down the pier, passing dolphin tours, gift shops and a fish monger.

    And drove out of town following the gorge and fantastic river that flows out into the wide valleys to the sea. Only an hour and we were back on a familiar road following the long lovely beaches down to Christchurch. Walked on the beach and then found ourselves at the crossroads cafe/restaurant cum wine shop and had a repeat performance of a few weeks before.

I tried to cut a deal with them, but even importing bottles from them direct is stupidly overpriced. Our hostel also rented out bikes with maps for do-it-yourself wine tours of the vineyards, so we set off again the next day (just to be sure we'd not missed ...
