a blog about seeing the world

The sunny side

New Zealand’s west coast is a captivating collection of lonely beaches,  emerald rainforest, soggy sheep, and impressive glaciated peaks (when the sun’s out).

On this day we woke to wind-driven rain, but thankfully the Southern Alps often cast a formidable rain shadow on their leeward lowlands. After a brief walk in the woods we drove east in hopes of emerging on the sunny side.

You’ll also notice we finally have a friend!  Our good friend Alex from Vancouver, BC will be joining us for the rest of our time in New Zealand.
