We made an early start for our 90 minute drive to Christchurch airport. We stopped only once along the way for a couple of photos of Akaroa Harbour from the Hilltop Café, the best vantage point across the valley.
Our flights were all paid for using frequent flyer points so we had no choice in the direction our trip home took. We flew from Christchurch to Auckland, then after three or four hours break we flew on to Sydney where we passed through immigration and customs. Then the final leg of the trip; Sydney to Perth and home.
The pups are as happy to see us as we are to see them. It’s good to be home, very good.
