          And it is cold and wet! The Banks Peninsula is very hilly and steep. Evidently it was formed from three volcanic eruptions and this caused the huge number of bays and inlets. Again the cliffs go all the way down to the waters edge. The road in was typically hilly and very windy and it took a lot more time and concentration. We encountered a large truck pulling a low loader with some sort of huge machine on it so I am glad we didn't ...

          With the girls not arriving until tomorrow, Dad and I decided to head to the Banks Peninsula and Akaroa. The peninsula was formed by a volcano and settled by the French (who seem to go hand in hand with explosions in the Pacific). Akaroa Harbour is protected from the rough ocean, and is a fertile growing ...

          ... for a run along the coast, had dinner and dried out our ice-packed tent. Thursday 7th May. Kaikoura Whale Watching tour and drive to Christchurch. The tour had a slow start this morning, with a half hour wait which we weren't expecting followed by a safety presentation and then a bus ride to the boat. But all was forgiven as soon as we were on the boat. The staff were enthusiastic and informative. We had our first Sperm whale sighting within 20mins on the water. It was ...

          ... on his return to the area in 1840, the Treaty of Waitangi had been signed and NewZealand became a English colony. Akaroa is today a stunning seaside village with a French flavour. We returned to the Radiance mid afternoon before the crowds returning from their day excursions. Dinner in the dining room and hen another show. We sailed at 6.30pm for our next stop Wellington.

          ... advertising fresh crayfish, it seemed like a good place to stop for a spot of lunch. Fresh crayfish and piping hot crispy chips eaten outside right next to the ocean waves crashing onto the rocks. It doesn't get any better than that for lunch! Kaikoura was one of the prettiest places we had stayed yet, with a spectacular coastline and mountain backdrop, and we took a stunning coastal walk around the headland on the first evening there. The next morning was another adventure ...
