Hello friends! Each of the coastal areas, where we’ve recently spent a few days, have a real beauty of their own 🙂 In Kaikoura, we saw reminders of the destructive power of the 2016 earthquake (magnitude 7.8) as the rebuild continues:
We saw beaches, quite different to those we’re used to:
with different wildlife (sleeping sea lion!!)
and stunning snow-capped mountains that appeared through the clouds – wow!!
There were more familiar scenes at Nelson:
And stunning geology at Punakaiki:
One more holiday snapshot to share then we head home; 3 weeks that have quickly disappeared!! Thanks so much for visiting today! Megan xo
