View of the Akoroa bay after getting off the ship tenders.
Captain Bruce Cottage. One of the original wooden cottages built in Akaroa.
Another original wooden house near the port. These homes are rented out to vacationers.
This is a small (in terms of rooms and size) bed and breakfast.
Mrs. Munn's Cottage. The cottages are built in the English style with wonerful front gardens.
A smaller cottage. The rose arbor leads into the front garden.
Loved the very ornate house trim and front garden.
Modern homes built on the hillside overlooking the bay.
The original Library.
Because Akaroa has a French origin many of the current day signs are still in French.
Another example of the French signage.
I loved this flower and have no clue what it is.
St. Peters Anglican Church, again, an original wooden building.
"They Loved Duty More Than They Feared Death" on left sign and "The Glorious Dead "on right sign of this War Memorial.
Saw these and was reminded of my mother. She made small needlepoint pictueres of every place she traveled. These happen to be bookmarks which she also collected in her travels.
This scene was amazing with the lighthouse, the incredible color of the water and the rolling New Zealand mountains.
