Today, we drove on the left for the last time. We said goodbye to Hokitika and drove up to the Punakaiki Rocks. We saw some spectacular scenery reminiscent of the Pacific Coast Highway. The “pancake rocks” made a good photo op and you could hear the power of the water in the blowhole and the surge pools as it made big booms. We drove back down to Greymouth to catch our last train of the trip. The Transalpine goes through the Southern Alps. The sky was brilliant blue, the Yellow Gorse Plant was in bloom and there was snow on the mountain tops. A beautiful mental snapshot to help us remember the county. We got into Christchurch around dinner-time. We walked around the park and had some of our new favorite food, Thai. Looks like we’ll have to start eating at Thai-Inter when we get home. That’s it for now. Stay tuned.
