I thought Hokitika was really cool.

I'll definitely be heading back to the West Coast of the South Island again soon.
In the winter rainfall is horrendous I think. They call it the Wet Coast.
Probably why those Nikau palms grow so well there.

I forgot to mention that as I was waiting for my flight or if Christchurch back to Auckland I spotted these US planes on the tarmac. They use Christchurch as their base to head to McMurdo Sound in Antarctica in the NZ claimed Ross Dependency.

Note that the C-130 is on skis.
They had 4 of them there and a C-17

In the late 90s, a unit I was attached to provided emergency DZ capabilities for McMurdo out of Christchurch. I never got to get that assignment. I did get to go to Sierra Leon for their civil war though when my roatation came up for Christchurch.

Thank you for some beautiful photos of your native country. NewZealand is a wondrous place that unfortunately I will never get to visit but your pictures bring it into my home. My Bride and I enjoy them.
Keep posting them.
