          ... be precise as they meet the ocean along this stretch of the coast. I started my new book today too, Inferno by Dan Brown! Been looking forward to this for a while, as I love all of his books. The morning of Monday 9th was set aside for running some small errands, including sending some postcards, buying more gifts for family and friends back home (because I am beyond generous...) & finally having my haircut! The dead cat on my head has gone, hoorah. Whale migration season was all but ...

          ... now I will never know. On hearing this news I grabbed a blanket and went to sleep. After three hours I was back on land. I couldn't get out of my wetsuit quick enough. I got my refund, got on my bike and cycled back to the farm. I have never been so happy to get back to this place! We had steak and chips for tea and then sat and watched a film. Of all films to be on the telly it was only 'Free Willy'...just about sums up my day. Bloody Killer ...

The crew scouted the surface for signs of spray from surfacing whales and listened carefully with an underwater microphone for the sperm whales signature clicking noises to estimated their direction and speed of travel through the water. And within 10 minutes we struck gold and the captain launched us at high speed across the water to a surfacing whale just under a kilometre away. The ...

          ... And despite the signs and warnings about getting to close, some tourists taunt the seals and then scream when they lurch towards them. We walk out to the rocks then up to the viewpoint and round the peninsula. The walk is really pretty but my feet are sore by the time we return, 4 hours later.
          That evening we play piano and stay up being sociable until the wee hours.
          I loved Kaikoura, wish I could have stayed longer, and the Albatross hostel was really well run.

          During the night there was an earthquake in Christchurch which was terrifying and it took me ages to get back to sleep after that. By morning I was very glad to be leaving but I wish it could have been a little later than 6:30! The journey to Kaikoura went quite quickly and we were there by 11:30 which was good. However, I was so exhausted from the constant lack of sleep that as soon as I'd checked in I ...
