Christchurch to Invercargill

We packed up our car on Friday & headed down to Wanaka, leaving home at about 3:30. We had a very pleasant trip down with a stop at Geraldine for a fish & chip dinner which we ate in the car. We arrived in Wanaka at about 8:45 with the boys asleep in the back.

We stayed Saturday night at Wanaka & then on Sunday we had lunch at the Wanaka dinosaur park with Lara & her children & Nik. It was fantastic to meet these scrappers in real life after talking over the internet with them for the past months. Unfortunately Brent decided that he wasn't going fast enough down the slide & decided to sit on his polar fleece & he spun out of control incurring a black eye for his exploits. That ended the lunch & we got in the car to go to Invercargill via the Crown range. James fell asleep at about Frankton & then by Kingston Brent was asleep too & neither really woke up until just short of Invercargill.

I have to say I love this sign on the outskirts of Invercargill, it should go quite nicely with a photo I took at Easter time of the Indian going along the Wanaka runway.

We arrived at Robin & Phyllis' & had time for a cup of coffee before Erin & Neil arrived with Magnus.
