A holiday today and sunshine – something we have been short of over Christmas. A friend and I took a cycle from Little River to Akaroa carrying my new Canon G15 to see what I could see. A great cycle, about 72km in total, around 2900m climbing and about the same going down very fast. I am still struggling to work with the G15, I treat it too much like my DSLR and that won’t work, but as with the DSLR practise will make perfect or at least better.
The Pahutikawa trees were in bloom, often called Christmas Trees here as they bloom around Christmas.
