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.
i love your pictures and how you describe your travels :) beers for breakfast??? haha! that sounds crazy, but maybe i might try it once.ReplyDelete
Yah I was thinking I would have to try that once too. Just one time shouldn't kill me...right?Delete
oh, really love egg benedict's photo ^^ReplyDelete
You know if you look close enough you're find that the orange bits in the bread is actually salmon (!!!!). I ordered bacon and they gave me the wrong thing! But of course I only realized after I finished snap snap snapping away. The cafe was very nice they changed the whole thing for me ;)Delete
What a wonderful trip you guys are making. Each place you visit looks amazing!ReplyDelete
Thank you for patiently following the posts! I was too trigger happy!Delete
those peaches! I'm so sorry to see summer go, if only for the peaches!ReplyDelete
those red flowers really look so amazing amongst a green leafy garden.
Yeap I really love peaches. The little shop had ever so many kinds, white flesh, yellow, vanilla...I can't recall the rest. I would love to live that close to nature.Delete
your writing + photos are so lovely!ReplyDelete
Thank you Janis, always!Delete
we just cannot say no to eggs benedict. no matter how crazy hollandaise sauce is for the diet ;)ReplyDelete
I know what you mean! I've always loved eggs benedict but I didn't realize how much butter and yolk there are inside that hollandaise sauce until I made it one day myself. I was quite traumatized *lol*Delete
