Kia Ora from beautiful Kaikoura in the South Island of New Zealand! It’s just unreal here. The little apartment we’re staying in looks out over the Kaikoura mountain range and the South Pacific Ocean. Today we saw the sunrise and then went on a whale watching excursion where we saw three (3) sperm whales, some sea kitties (seals) and a whole mess of dolphins. Our sleep schedule is a bit wonky; we count ourselves lucky if we make it to 9 o’ clock. But at least we’re not snoozing through the mornings. Right now Alan is bugging me about walking into town to get some lunch, so I’ll be off. Enjoy a few photos from our trip so far (taken with my canon, edited with my phone, where I’m writing this).
