Taking time to smell the roses Where we spent sometime in the beautiful rose garden there. And then we made it to lovely Christchurch!Maybe even recreating our own scenes from the movie!
and climbing around on boulders in those landscapes! Making our way to some Lord of the Rings landscapesEven explore inside a bitDiscover a cave!Even “catch” them in our hands 😀Took some time to gaze at some magnificent water falls On this leg of the adventure we spent some time in Arthur’s Pass.We found 4 total at a random car park view point. They have such personality (Pretty cheeky, my kinda animal 😉

pancake rocks and blowholes at the start of a cave! Making faces and enjoying the view These formations have created many blowholes! Natural rock formations preserved by the DOC of New Zealand. I love how they work so hard to keep/restore the country’s habitats. Our first glimpse of pancake rocks!A random beach stop on our way south.

Before the ride and before assignments of horses I had made a comment about how this specific horse was spooked by the helicopter from below and how going up a mountain I hoped he wouldn’t be mine. Thank you UNIVERSE!This is me on a horse.Above is a picture before we went out horseback riding (someone was private helicoptered up to join our group)
