    The room was rather large. We appointed. With a magnificent view of the bay and snow capped mountains.

    As we pulled into Timaru the van struggled to make it up a slight incline so we pulled up outside an aqua centre and set up the van. Day one we walked around Caroline bay, around the area played some crazy golf, visited the aviary, and walked around town to get to know the area. The 2nd day we did pretty much the same explored more of the area, …

    ... just finished down the hair for a wedding party. She didn't do a bad job on taming Ben's mop. After cooking some lunch in town, we drove up Mount Fyffe Road, a gravel track that leads unfalteringly straight from the Kaikoura Peninsula up the mountainside. It has barely a kink for perhaps four miles. The farmland we drove past was covered in sprinklers irrigating the fields. After this morning's rain, I don't know why this was necessary. We ...

That got put to the test today as we were being tailgated by a guy through the ...

    After completing our bus tour, we are now off on our own to Kaikoura. There are two main roads north from Christchurch: one on Highway 1 directly north along the coast, the other goes a bit inland closer to the mountains. Distance probably wasn't the issue, but the driving time for the inland route was considerably longer. As we were heading south again after leaving Kaikoura, we opted for the inland road northbound and the coast road southbound. ...

    ... to work. By this time there was much less than an hour before our excursion, not good timing. The reason why it's called the 'killer' whale is because it kills whales. Another irrelevant fact about whales is there is a whale that comes to the New Zealand waters called the Right Whale, it was called the right whale by the early whalers because it was the right whale to hunt. After our coffee, a visit to the shop and taking our travel pills we went to the ...
