We drove up the east coast from Dunedin, and stopped along the way to see the Moeraki Boulders, some unusual, spherical boulders along the beach.
Then we drove to Akaroa, a former French colony east of Christchurch. Apparently the English started a colony only a year or two before this town was settled, otherwise New Zealand would have been a French territory.
We took the Summit Road for some views. I liked this peninsula in Akaroa Harbour.
On our way to Christchurch the next morning, my Mom was lamenting the fact that we still hadn't taken a picture of a black sheep in the fields with other sheep. Fifteen minutes later, we came across this flock full of black sheep!
My favorite animal in the flock was this piebald sheep:
By the time I took this last picture, all the sheep were running away from our car.
