Kaikoura Peninsula

We went to South Bay, the south side of the Kaikoura Peninsula, after leaving church yesterday.  We walked up the steep path to the top of the peninsula, and then Gayle offered to go back and drive around to the other end to pick us up if we wanted to walk across the top.  Sounded like fun to me, so we did that!  I had never been across the entire top; we’ve walked around at sea level twice.  It was a gorgeous day!  The sun shone part of the time, and part of the time clouds came over.  The colors were so vivid.  A sailboat left South Bay about the same time we did, and we watched it tacking around to the north side of the peninsula.  It arrived about the same time we did.

Right after the carpark, we crossed this bridge along the edge of the bay.

Near the end--they came back to meet those of us who lagged behind.
