We left our little spot of paradise in Christchurch to climb climb climb.
It was pretty much farmland for at least an hour, with very little climbing.
Then we found beautiful peaks at every turn, black stone and white snowy streaks.
The weather was gorgeous until we got to the very top of Arthur's Pass, then we were in the clouds. So, we were once again very blessed.
We were very curious about where the transalpine train was - and we found it at the Mt. White Bridge. We appreciated being able to pull over to take all the photos we wanted.
After the Arthurs Pass Village we stopped at the viaduct overlook for one last view - and were visited by 2 curious and "cheeky" keas. As you can see - one of them was waging war on our aerial!
Our accommodation for the night is a cabin in a campground park - right on the ocean - we can hear the surf on the black sand beach.
We ate white bait pizza!!! Unique indeed, after buying some greenstone and a blocked photo from an art gallery.
One more trek - walking across the street to see the glowworms in the bushes. Neat!
