I totally made G hold up the cars behind us when we were leaving a supermarket carpark in Greymouth to stick the camera out the window and take a pic of this utterly divoon little lilac and lemon house!
Welcome to Punakaiki!
And then the sun came out!
I had thought, when we got up, that the West Coast was going to live up to it's reputation of rain, rain, rain.......but no!
The sun turned it on, and it was a glorious day!
We picked up a young German lad at the hostel, as you do, and we gave him a lift to Punakaiki ( I can't even begin how to tell you how it's pronounced!).
We may have scared him a little, but it wasn't so bad.
We'll see if he gets in touch when he makes it over to Christchurch......
He was kind enough to take a pic of us being all touristy.
Do forgive the unstylish sunglasses.....the scenery is so gorgeous, I simply had to have my specs on, and as I don't deal well with bright light, I also had to have the cumbersome "over glasses sunglasses" on......
We had a splendid brunch at a rather pleasant pub.
Corn fritter stack for me, above....
...and classic Kiwi fish 'n' chups for G....
(no, really, that's how Kiwi's say chips)
And then I had to play with the horses outside......
At least I do look frightfully intellectual with my specs on!
And then we did the little walk over the world famous pancake rocks.
She's over there!
Maybe I can see her delicious curves, if I look long and hard enough......
But just look how adorable the pancake rocks are!
All layered like pancakes!
More to come, but admittedly, any gig pix are pretty hazy....
