My favourite part of the trip is probably the part between Waipara and the Lewis Pass... the expanse of hills is so beautiful. It was especially lovely this trip as it was all so lush and green after the rain. Normally it can be quite dry and hot so we swelter in our old van!
Anyhow, I thought that I'd better post some photos. If you want to see more you can check out Bonnie's Blessings as Bonnie posted a lot there. Here are a few of my favourites (photo credits to Abbie and Bonnie):

Abbie making a run in a game of cricket on the beach... note the tree in the background, it is the tree that bears the great swing!
