New Zealand (14 – 26 Nov 2009)


Ferns unrolling



Visiting Sair in Christchurch



With Sair’s rat



Oamaru – wool bales



Mount Cook



Lupins! They were growing wild all over the place, in a ridiculous array of colours.



Lake Wanaka from Wanaka township



Driving through the Crown Range between Queenstown and Wanaka (after hiking the Routeburn Track)



Lake Wanaka, driving away from town



Learning how to rock balance – frustrating, yet strangely satisfying



Fox Glacier, advancing at a rate of almost a metre a week



A Kea, shortly before it devoured our entire rental car (for those of you who haven’t had the pleasure, they’re a large alpine parrot that lives in the South Island of New Zealand – they’re cunning beasties, and will eat anything)



Castle Hill boulders
