On August 3rd, we drove from Oamaru, NZ to Kaikoura, NZ. It was a long day's drive via Christchurch that showed us a lot of South Island countryside.

Things we saw along the way, not all of them explicable

On arrival in Kaikoura, we were treated to a place that looked a little bit like heaven. Snowclad mountains march down to the tree-lined water, and the ocean draws your eye to a distant horizon.

Our route of travel that day. And the overall maps of the trip.

Next up: dawn over the Pacific, and swimming with dolphins.

As usual, more at the Flickr set.

Great pictures of "heaven." There's bestseller-level money in books written by people who visit heaven, but none of them have pictures. Maybe there's an opportunity here.

I love that road sign. May I make an LJ user icon from it?

Whenever I travel internationally, I am always struck by how the quality of the light changes from place to place. It was clear and obvious to me in Israel and in Kenya, and I see it now in your pictures of New Zealand. This is one of the reasons I love to travel: the quality of the light draws me away.
