It was just after midday when we started our journey from Picton down to Christchurch.
I was quite amazed at the constant change in scenery - one of Stevens, our coach captain, frequent comments is that you can see 4 different sceneries in a day and we did.
We stopped partway so we could take photos of the fur seals that were sun baking on the rocks just below the road.
We then continued on to Christchurch.
This is the bridge over the Avon River.
NZ - Christchurch in particular, sent rescuers over to NY to help with the post 911 clean up. These trusses were bought back I think as a gift to say TY. So have been made into a sculpture in one of Christchurch's 600 parks/reserves..
We stayed in the Holiday inn.
