Title: Photo blog Christchurch and Southern Alpine crossing

Dear Family and Friends,

A round up of the photos for Christchurch and the Southern alpine crossing.

Photo 1, Punting in the city centre
Photo 2, City centre tram
Photo 3, Christchurch cathedral in ruins, a cardboard cathedral replaces it elsewhere with a memorial to 129 people who lost their lives in the earthquake.
Photo 4, Container city while rebuilding takes place.
Photo 5 Approaching the Alps.
Photo 6 High plains, tussocks of grass, limited sheep grazing, dry side of the mountains
Photo 7 Tunnel and water shute over road, high up near the passes.

Just a flavour of the countryside! Once we had crossed the watershed the terrain became lush sub tropical forest and tree ferns, a marked contrast due to the prevailing westerly winds which bring many metres of rain.

All our best,

Lynne, Alan and Josh
