I began the day out of town at Mandeley Farm watching a sheep round-up, shearing and having a lovely spot of tea with the lady of the house. The breathtaking scenery firmed my desire to visit NZ again, and hopefully soon. This remains my favorite country in the world for beautiful scenery and lack of crowds and big cities. I am nature girl and this place suits me perfect!
Back in town we stopped at the Christchurch Botanical Gardens and here I wandered for a good 2 hours or more. The peaceful location lent itself to quiet reflection and introspection while meandering among the roses and rhododendrons.
I found some interesting trinkets in town and then hopped the shuttle back to the port city of Lytleton, NZ
A wonderful day that I hope you may experience at some point for yourself.
