Inland Route – Christchurch to Picton

This school holidays we went from Christchurch to Picton, for a birthday party, and to throw someone’s ashes into the sea.

Normally we’d go via Kaikoura, but that route has been closed since a major earthquake last year. So we took the inland route – Culverden, Lewis Pass, Murchison, St Arnaud, Maruia, Wairau Valley. 478km – 7 hours 30 minutes.



Saga: 100 Days Project: Day 99

I spotted this Saga street art on Fitzgerald Avenue a week or so ago and couldn’t wait to get up close and take some photos. You can see The Will well, and Ghüs – but there’s obviously a lot more in behind the prefab building. Hopefully when construction is all done, that will move and we can see the Saga street art in all its glory.

PS Saga is one of the coolest comics ever.
