Back to Christchurch‏

Yesterday I completed a loop of New Zealand’s South Island. I returned to the island’s major city, Christchurch, where I arrived two weeks ago.

The biggest town I passed through was Timaru. I noticed that they have a nice botanic garden, so I stopped and looked around.

Earlier, I found more natural attractions along my way.

My destination last night was the village of Sumner. This seaside area of Christchurch has many natural attractions, not of the least of which is my gracious host, Graeme McIver. He lives in a small and charming home on the cliff. This cliff is so steep that his house sits 60 steps down from the road. But it’s certainly worth the view overlooking the town and the South Pacific Ocean.

Since Graeme is taking a class on writing this morning and early afternoon and has a date this evening, he left his house to me. I am so fortunate to have such generous friends.
