The Cherry Tour

Every year, mid to late December, we try to go East. Because near Blenheim, there’s cherry heaven :D

On the way, at Havelock.
That beauty is still there, too.
Later, at the orchard.
On the ladder, everyone!
Power picking!
And eating …!
Already dreaming of all the cherry tarts and compotes that await us.
The red gold.
Tired already?
Let’s go to the Rarangi beach.
… and Monkey Bay.
Since we’re here, we can be monkeys.
Sitting tight for a moment.
And monkeying around again.
Bringing sea treasures before the monkey king.
Brown kelp at Ana-o-Rongomaipapa Bay.
Monkey Bay lookout.
