... mountain faces around us, though!

We started the next leg of our journey with a stop in Twizel to visit Francie, who invited us in for a cup of tea and some delicious scones. This ensured we didn’t get hungry as we drove to Lake Tekapo, where we paused to admire another gorgeous mountain lake, a lovely old stone church on the shore, and oodles of pink, purple, white, and yellow lupines growing in the rocks.

... for roofing.

We passed the "startup city" which is brightly coloured shipping containers that have been set up for businesses to operate out of in a mall that we can't drive into. We also pass a cleared block of land with lots of white plastic chairs lined up. Each chair represents a person killed in the earthquake. So sad.

After picking up some activity books for the boys, we went and got a couple of NZ SIM cards for our phones and after some other goodies from K-Mart, and a bit of sushi for an afternoon snack, we were back at the motorhome and ready for a bit of sightseeing while the weather was good.

We decided to head to Akaroa and even though it looked on the map like it was just over a few hills and a bit further away from Christchurch ...

... cold, and rained on and off for the first 5 days back! With minus temperatures early morning and mostly staying in single figures for the day we are finding the cold hard. With our boxes from the UK still in transit we have had to go out and buy some merinos and coats.

Katarina and Tiffany started back at their old school on Monday. KC is in Room 10 with Mrs Newcombe, sadly a late change and not with her good ...
