Dear Family and Friends,
When our ship arrived in Akaroa, we could have taken a tour via bus to go to the Christchurch. We went to Christchurch on a trip to New Zealand about 3 years ago, so we elected to take a tour with a man and a van to see the local sights.
I am so glad we did the local tour. New Zealand is a beautiful country. The most beautiful I have ever experienced. I hope that these pictures will do it justice.
Here is a picture of Chuck before we started our tour.
The scenery was incredible.
Chuck walking on a secluded beach.
Those white dots in the grass are sheep.
This is my favorite picture. Sheep in the foreground and our ship in the background.
