[travel|photos] New Zealand travelog recap - getting from Oamaru to Kaikoura

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.
