Arrival in Christchurch, New Zealand, South Island

Nice flight in over what looked like English countryside, with lots of hedges...

Nice sunset as we walked to dinner ...

The restaurant had a nice sign on the wall:

(If you can't read it, it says, "Message to all staff: The light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.")

And then to our wonderful room at the Old Countryhouse ...

I thought I had responded to these. I guess not. I am going to use the words on that sign! Great sunset. This photolog is perfect. I am right along sharing.

We've just returned from the South Island, and liked the Old Countryhouse too!

Just curious, which restaurant was it that had the sign?

Dang it, I don't recall. It's a Pizza place that is only a block or two over from the Old Conryhouse. The nice German girl who checked us in at the Countryhouse recommended it.

Wish we were there now.

That must have been Memphis Belle. We had dinner there... great pizza.

I knew that wall looked familiar, wish I'd seen that sign when we were there!

Hope you don't mind me linking to your post on my blog, I missed taking any pictures of the Old Countryhouse and you've got a great pic of your room.

Aha, that WAS the Memphis Belle!

Don't mind you linking at all!
