A summer trip to Kaikoura, Day

Went for a quick getaway of a night in coastal town of Kaikoura, north of Christchurch. Since the weather was nice and warm, we decided to go for camping. We started a bit late and the traveling took us more than 2 hours.

Once we reached Kaikoura, we setup a tent at one of the camping ground there. They have some nice facilities to support your camping need. I would recommend this place to any who would like to do camping.

Setting up camp took us around an hour and from there we went straight to Ohau Waterfalls expecting to find young seals (pup), but unknown to us, they only go there in the winter!

Not to go empty handed, I took a few photos of the waterfall.

Going back from the waterfall, we stopped by Nins Bins, arguably the most famous crayfish seller in Kaikoura.

After buying for ourselves a whole crayfish, we went straight back to camp for dinner. After a while it was dark, and I wanted to take photo of the tent at night. I always admire the glowing tent shot against the dark background, so I wanted to try one of my own.

That’s the end of day 1.
