After a pretty drive which included some steep hills and hairpin curves we reached Akaroa. We couldn't believe our eyes to see a Cruise ship there!! It seems that since the earthquake the ships have been stopping at Akaroa and bussing the people that wanted to go into Christchurch 1.5 hours each way!! The main reason for going to the peninsular was the home and outdoor gallery of Josie Martin......called the Giants House. It was superb, the garden is full of brilliant mosaic sculptures - see pictures, truly inspiring. If you want to know more go to http://www.thegiantshouse.co.nz
Lovely scenery, cute houses and a fab lunch to end our stay in New Zealand. We have had a fantastic time; stunning scenery, wonderful, friendly people, yummy food, delicious wine, great weather........brilliant!!
