Looking out from our cabin in Kaikoura.
We saw quaint little shops operating from the front of homes as we walked to the town centre.
The big fonts, the smell of used books, and all that wood. I loved it.
Had a little chat with the nice lady owner. I was looking for a book by A.H Reed.
The town centre.
Kaikoura is actually famous for 2 things: whales (watching) and crayfish. In fact, 'Kaikoura' literally means 'to eat crayfish'.
And so eat crayfish we did.
Though we missed out on the whales. It was a gale-warning day.
I would like to go back again, even if it's just for the whales.
NZ's nature is just astounding. The sheer breadth of it all. Crayfish and (almost) whales are worth all the time in the world :DReplyDelete
I laughed at the 'almost' in your comment. I agree with you totally and I think the kiwis are really lucky to be living so near to nature.Delete
