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

      Woke up to a lovely sunny day in Kaikoura. Clear blue skies and no wind, barely a breeze, which is just bliss for us Wellingtonians!

      Whale Watch Kaikoura's headquarters is a great set up. They have a great spot on the beach with boardwalk along the edge of the sand. Kids found the beach volleyball court and entertained themselves while …

      I woke at 7 am. We had a cup of tea. I walked out to the lake. Majestic. Given the night I had... this was more than welcomed. I wanted nothing more to do with this place, so, by 7:30, we were on the road and taking photos galore. We stopped at Geraldine at a stunning little brewery for breakfast. They had deer. And a Buck with huge antlers! The …

      ... lazy looking animals on the land, but graceful and agile when in the water. We were then taken to our hostel, 'The Lazy Shag'.

      ... just the same incase they spot them!

      We complete the loop and return to the camper which we had parked up near a caravan selling crayfish, aptly, as Kai means food in Maori, and Koura means crayfish. Neither of us are tempted by the crayfish and settle for a cuppa instead before heading off to find a spot to spend the night.

      ... hours later.

      Stopped for another look at the seal pups at Ohau. More pups than the other day. Quite a few groups were in the pools on the way down the stream.

Pretty amazing to see them so close up and with such easy access.
