Christchurch to Akaroa

We caught a shuttle bus at 8.30 to go and collect our motor homes.  After a very efficient handover from Wenderkreisen we set out and stopped about 15 minutes down the road to go grocery shopping.  After a thorough exploration of the Pack and Save (and the outlay of quite a few NZ dollars) we were all stocked up and ready to travel.

We headed south east to Akaroa on the Banks Peninsula, and stopped at Little River for our first picnic lunch of this tour.

The scenery was very impressive and our first view of Akaroa Harbour was stunning.  We stopped at Duvauchelle at the head of the Harbour to book the Williams contingent into a caravan park there.  Then on to Akaroa for a look around.  Penny and John are spending the night with friends near Akaroa, and after we left them we explored a little further along the Peninsula before returning to our campsite.  We unpacked and got everything ship shape in our travelling home and then walked to the local pub for a delicious fish and chip dinner before settling in for the night.
