The last morning in Akaroa, we slept in, checked out late, before hitting the road again.
But first, breakfast at The Stables Bar & Cafe.
The outdoor seats were scattered among a garden of lavender, roses, hydrangeas and more (my flower vocabulary is limited), but it smelled heavenly.
I just had to sneak in this photo of our neighbours. Beers for breakfast, how tempting!
But I decided to be sensible instead. Though I can't say eggs benedict are a whole lot healthier.
Off we go after breakfast.
These signs were irresistible, and so we pulled in.
And ended up with the sweetest-smelling hand carry luggage we've ever had.
Everything in the little shop was picked from their orchards.
Halfway through the journey we stopped for a coffee and snack break at a small but interesting town called Little River.
The Little River Cafe & Store. Organic coffee and pastries at the cafe, crafts by local designers in the store and don't miss the gallery tucked at the end featuring original NZ art exhibits.
