Kaikoura

Location: Kaikoura , New Zealand


This is the boat harbour, the sea floor has risen here about 3 metres and a whole new Marina had to be formed. They are still working on it and it will need a thorough dredging.

This is typical of the inland road to Kaikoura, many minor patches of new seal and a lot of major road works from the quake.

When we were last here with the kids this was all under water, not now and the seals don't like it.

This all used to be under the sea, further up the coast the floor has risen 8 metres.

This says it all, the townsfolk suffer badly due to no passing traffic, we had to use the inland route as the coastal one was closed for urgent work.

Another view with the same story.

The cross roads between the highway toChristchurch and the inland route to Kaikoura.

This is the so called top ski resort in northern Canterbury.

Some things still just have to be done, like haircuts.

The story of the old detox hospital at Hanmer.

Some of the history inside the info centre at Hanmer.

This was a candy store in Hanmer a Springs. They had all the old lollies, jaffas,aniseed a balls. Spearmint leaves, humbugs and acid drops, you have to be a certain age to know about all of them.
