From Christchurch to Auckland

It’s been a bit quiet around these parts as we packed up and moved north. We are mainly settled in now- just the boxes to unpack in our new, sunny and spacious, flat.

1100 km in photographic form:

The packers arrived just after 8 and we had wiped down the last surfaces by the lunchtime, ready to hit the road. It was a scorching hot day!

We stopped for some refreshments in Cheviot

And a swim in Okiwi Bay.

We cought the 5:45am ferry from Picton to Wellington, which made for some bleary eyes and stunning photos.

We had lunch with my Aunty and Uncle in Wellington, and were back on the road by 1, taking the Desert Road up through the middle of the North Island. All of a sudden Ruapehu popped up! This is scenery like nothing we’ve seen on the Mainland.

We spent the night in Taupo, and found some treasures on the side of the lake.

Less than 4 hours on the road the next day and we hit the turn off for Pukekohe.

I’m hoping to get my craft room unpacked and back in action over the next few days. We’ll be hitting the markets and craft fair tommorow!
