The bottom picture from the previous post shows a building in Lyttelton that would drop the big ball down the pole at exactly midnight Greenwich Mean Time every day.  The sailors needed that for their navigation.

We see these beautiful flowers blooming all over the place. (Top picture from previous post)

The middle photo was taken from the gondola that rises to the top of a pass between Christchurch and Lyttelton.   The photo shows Lyttelton harbor.

Akaroa is farther from Christchurch, on the south side of the Banks Peninsula.  The town of Akaroa sits on the east side of Akaroa harbor.  The harbor is a caldera from a volcano that eroded to the sea on the south side.

Akaroa is now a popular place for people to visit for holiday or weekends in the summer.

The following are all photos of Akaroa harbor.

The pictures below are from Akaroa
