Just a lovely day of riding, enjoying the view, breathing in the ocean air in patches and looking forward to heading off on the ferry to the North Island tomorrow. Was good to see the post Kaikoura Earthquake infrastructure works have progressed well up the coast road and Kaikoura itself looks quite renewed. We again were blown away with the great warmth of our hosts no matter where we went.
Fossil Point for coffee and no it doesn’t refer to the age of clients but the fossils along the shore which can be found at low tide.
Lots of good views of railway bridges over glacial watercourses.
Lined up at roadworks (one of many).
Lots of tunnels on the road and rail.
The troops are coming (a mobile shot over Norm shoulder)
Crayfish lunch on the shore at Nin's Bin.
A disaster waiting to happen...or bored waiting for lunch perhaps.
Underpass works on the railroad, impressive.
Lots of grapevines and wineries to be seen in the Marlborough region. The leaves being a sharp contrast to the dry grass on the hills behind.
Tonight’s accommodation (we stayed here last year) Very nice. Ok so not a great shot of the Motel but not bad of the bikes … just saying.
