Akoroa New Zealand

We sailed to the south island, and visited a farming community of Akoroa. Usually the ship visits Christchurch, but since their earthquake , they've diverted ships to this port. A delightful farming community that's ready for the business.
We tendered to this port- a nice quiet farming town

The bay we sailed into

Our ship in the bay

Our driver pulle dover and said he'd never seen anything like it. At least 200 dolphins in the bay. The biggest pod he'd ever seen. Yeah earth!

Rain didn't stop us

Why we don't need to visit Scotland

One of the best pics from the trip. It's okay, we're all mortal. Love well.

The herding dogs- respond to visual or auditory controls

Herded back to the pin

Sheep sheering. Their wool was very oily.

Beef has become the #1 export to China, ahead of sheep.


Celebrity Sheep- Baa!
