We have decided to stay in Kaikoura until the crowds leave Christchurch. We like this place. We had a spectacular if wind-buffeted walk around the headland yesterday. We saw seals but no dolphins. The boys moans were limited to a few complaints about how my estimates of the walk duration were always out by about an hour. Do they really think they would start if I said 3.5 hours at the beginning?
I have just spent the last couple of hours updating our photos so feel free to check back through previous entries.
