Foto Friday: Eastern coastline of the South Island of NZ

This week as the stories about the death and destruction from the earthquake in Christchurh, NZ were reported, I was saddened for the people of NZ, and people of other countries, who lost friends, loved ones, and general parts of a beautiful city.

The photo above is one I took off the eastern coastline of the South Island of New Zealand. My husband and I were traveling from Christchurch to Picton, were we would ride the ferry, crossing the Cook Strait to reach the North Island.

Christchurch was the one city we spent the most time in on our trip, as most of our time was spent in rural areas of New Zealand. Our first splurge, ever, on an excellent meal in a well known, and award winning, restaurant called Hays- where we ate some of the best lamb in our lives.

After an excellent meal, we walked around the city visiting the shops, buying all of our souvenirs for the trip, and stopping for dessert at a cafe in the SOL Square where I had a long black and an amazing chocolate mousse.

We only spent one night there, but art museums, historical districts, and the natural beauty of the area could have kept us busy for days.
