Last day of road trip

Our last stretch of the road trip was cruisy with one goal in mind: have seafood lunch in Kaikoura and look at some adorable seals at the seal colony. We did have a great seafood lunch but did not see seals because the tide was high and we couldn't get to the rocks that they were laying on. Plus, a few weeks beforehand, some punk kids (who should be locked up in jail) clubbed around 20 baby seals to death and I think that has made the entire colony a bit weary. I mean, what kind of sick person would do that?!

kaikoura lager, damn good on a hot summers day

We had a bowl of steamed mussels and a half a bbq crayfish.
Loved loved loved the mussels. I never did like mussels and I think it is because the other times I had it, they were always over done and chewy. This time they are actually refreshing and so very delicious. We washed it all down with a pint of Kaikoura lager. Summer heaven.

The drive from Kaikoura to Rangiora where Aaron's parents live, is a mere 2.5 hours if that. We got home to enjoy Christmas eve and I got to feed the chooks. They're super cute, when they hear the feed shaking in the container, they come running. It's hilarity.

I wish that for hooligans like those who so brutally murdered the baby seals, that they could for one minute experience the agony of their actions.
