Boy it gets light late over here. Still pitch black at 7.45am
Picked up the van, really nice. Will upload pic soon.
So much rain around, flooding of roads everywhere. Again, will upload some pics soon.
Spent the day looking around Christchurch, really amazing place. So much damage but they gave been really innovative in how the keep things going. See photos of the damage, and the container mall I.e innovative use of shipping containers to make a really cool temporary mall.
Drove not to 'new Brighton' which is a beach side suburb of Christchurch
Drove down to ashburton late in the day, in the pouring rain. Have checked into local camp ground, and off to see Lynette's dad Ray for dinner.
No plans for tomorrow jet, but have learnt there is record snowfall on the cards for later this week, so need to think carefully about what we do as the roads will be treacherous, and don't want to get snowed in anywhere. But whatever we do, I a sure it's gonna be fun!
