Christchurch to Dunedin

Warning: Some of the pictures in the following post could be disturbing for some people!
We finally left Christchurch behind!!!
On Barbara's Birthday we did a SKYDIVE together! Really crazy to jump out of a plain.

On the way down to Dunedin we saw some seals, shags, the first penguin and this cool old boat shed.

Barbara likes hugging hedges now!?!

These round boulders on a beach half way between Christchurch and Dunedin look like they are from outer space

Seaweed impressions in still...

The last few days he have been staying at Otago Peninsular. Really nice but most the time the weather is pretty crappy.

A day on a sheep padic:

You might come across a nice little sheep tail like this and wounder why they loose them.

The little baby sheep still have them.

The farmers put very strong rubber bands around them

so all the circulation gets cut off and they fall off. The farmers do that so that the sheep don't get their own shit all over the tail.

You will probably also find a lot of bones.

And maybe even a dead sheep.

One of the sheep skulls is now on the front of our van and hopefully will keep away all evil.

We had some bad luck with the van before. The wind was so strong that it blew the driver's door out and now its buggered up and doesn't open any more. I hope I'll be able to fix it up back in Auckland with Sanchio. Also the van tends to over heat when we go up steep hills. We just had it in the garage but after half a day of working on it they still didn't find the problem. They wanted us to come back on Monday but we think we will just leave. It's only a problem when going uphill, on the flat its totally fine and I just don't want to spend any more money on cars.
