This is the view from the cabin we stayed in at Akaroa, rather nice to get an upgrade and not have to pay the extra, that NEVER happens to me! The hills were looking a bit browner than usual after a long hot summer.
Diamond Harbour, so named for the sunlight dancing on the water. This is where I spent my summers as a child and my mother still has the batch some 40 years later.
The flags in the previous post were at the Wellington Zoo and I thought they looked so cool blowing in the wind.
