We haven't been out for a long time because of winter and hubby being sick. Today we went to Akaroa and what a day it was. When you are at the top off the hill this magic place appears.
I made photos of everything in Akaroa in the past but still find new things. This is a garden of people who apparently like beer I think. Look at the trees.
Around the corner of the house is the person who probably drank it all. She lays there day in, day out ;)
In 1838 a French whaler arrived here and it became a French settlement. Therefore there was a French festival today with baguettes, berets and French flags.
You could have a rest anywhere and have a magnificent view
Isn't this a great spot to have your lunch.
I think I retire in Akaroa sight. We buy a little fishing boat for my husband and a little cottage with a veranda where I can write or read a good book. Deal
This is the view when we had lunch and a bird came flying by just in the right time.

and I got my lips painted ;)

We took a different route home. From here we had to go over a gravel road, looking down in the deep valley. But it was worth it. What a view
The dark blue water is where the ocean starts. The patches in the water are mussel farms.
The colours are stunning everywhere. What a paradise. What a day. What a great weekend we had.
I am so grateful!
