South Island New Zealand

We landed without any problems in Christchurch and were picked up by our campervan company. We hired a two berth Alpha Campervan that came with toilet and shower. As many areas around Christchurch were still closed off due to the earthquake damage, we decided we would leave Christchurch for another holiday. We stocked up on groceries and the essentials before heading north up the east coast. We poked our noses into a few of the beaches and discovered they were very different to the white sandy beaches we have on the east coast of Australia. Here it was predominantly pebbles and rocks with some dark sand in places. This was Leithfield Beach and it may have been summer but it was much colder than we were used to.
