New Zealand South Island

We have spent almost a week on the South Island of New Zealand. We had to visit our friends Derren and Helen and Maddi from Christchurch. This is our third visit to Darren and Helens and they have come to visit us in ambush too! 

We had a great time reconnecting and eating and just hanging out. Plus we went car shopping. We bought a Subaru car for our time in NZ. When we leave, Colton will drive it until he comes home. Then he will sell it and see how much of it we can recoup. 

We also drove 6 hours south of Christchurch to a small area called Kaka point to visit our friends Nelson and Jos and their dog Podge. We only had 2 days, but we packed them full of eating, mussel collecting, cockle hunting and visiting. We should have booked a week, but we didn't. So we just had a short visit. We stayed with Nelson and Jos 3 years ago

We also had to pick up a stock of cheese from the cheese factory that Jos works at!
