We spend a terrific time with Diane and Bill, blogging friends from Australia. In the morning we headed off to Akaroa and had lunch together. What a treasure to meet such lovely people and a pleasure to show them around.
We did something different this time and went to Fisherman's Bay garden, about 20 minutes from Akaroa. This private garden is an absolute paradise with gorgeous flowers and native plants, great art, like the corrugated cow and stunning views.
You never get enough from the views from Akaroa either
I hadn't been to the Giant House for a while and took Bill and Diane there. I hadn't seen these swinging girls yet with trumpets on their head.
The hot summer put the whimsical and colourful mosaic creations in the limelight. We then got back to Christchurch again. A fantastic day
