Of course we had a look around the town of Christchurch itself. The Botanicgardens are excellent and we spent a good number of hours exploring there.
The roses were all in bloom
Jody thought this sculpture was "interesting"
Whilst in New Zealand, we borrowed Brett's car and drove down the South Island toQueenstown via Greymouth on the west coast.
In Greymouth we had a great time on adirt trike track. The girls when in an amphibous vehicle, while Dad and Michael tookthe trikes. The tracks was very very rough and crossed a few creeks - so we reallyneeded the wet weather gear
Greymouth is a fishing port - here's a fisherman
In Queenstown, we had a ride on the rapids Jetboat (madeus all sick!)
And spent some time at the lookoutafter riding up the cablecar
