A few select pics from a recent trip…

A few select pics from a recent trip.  By fluke of nature we managed to catch 11 days of sun from the 13 we were away. The rest of the country wasn’t so lucky.  It was great to get out and see more of the homeland. Like many New Zealanders, prior to this road trip I’d seen more foreign soil than I had of my own.

The Marina at Picton.


A seal playing.  Royal Albatross centre, Otago Peninsula.


Mark of the seagull. Royal Albatross centre, Otago Peninsula.


New Year Rodeo, Wanaka.


View over Wanaka from Mt. Iron.


An earnest Dork impression. Fox Glacier.


Franz Joseph Glacier.


Inside an abandoned Gold Mine. Near Greymouth.


Steps carved into the Pancake Rocks. Punakaiki.


Sea-spray through a blow hole. Punakaiki.


There are no photos from the Ferry crossing at the end of the trip, but it was eventful enough to remember without them.  We crossed in 50-55 knot gales, so at least half of the passengers got seasick …Myself included.
