Yeah! West Coast, and the weather is beautiful! Didn’t expect that, after our previous stays here, which were very wet indeed. As a matter of fact, this region has the highest rainfall in NZ because of its geographic location. The “bad” weather mostly comes from the west or southwest, it gets stuck at the mountains and rains off heavily, the air moving to the East Coast is dry. That’s why Christchurch is such a nice place, except for the earthqakes there.
