Week 24 and day 1 of a long-awaited holiday in New Zealand.
Stretched out in a simple cottage high above Cass Bay on the Banks Peninsula. Below us a fascinating bay with muddy winding street, kayaks racked up and amazing rocks above. Big rain this week and earthquakes prior have blocked roads, gouged retaining walls and left gaping holes in the eateries of nearby Lyttleton. We love it here.
