Today we traveled from Punakaiki to Christchurch across Arthur’s Pass. It was a long day in the car, but with beautiful scenery.
We arrived in Christchurch late in the afternoon and found our hotel, The Novotel at Cathedral Square. From our room you can see the earthquake damaged Anglican Cathedral. After getting settled in our room we took a walk around our hotel. We found a restaurant for dinner, Francesca’s Italian Kitchen, and since we were early they seated us right away. We continued walking around the area after dinner. Albert had to have a gelato after dinner. We stopped in at Rollickin Gelato so he could get dessert.
