Whales in New Zealand

The day started early. One can not leave Kaikoura without trying to see whales in New Zealand up close. That is unless the day is stormy and one is suffering from seasickness.

Yesterday, we ended the day in the Fyffe Lodge, just outside Kaikoura. You can read about that food-themed day here. The hosts are very friendly people, the lodge was great, but the restaurant has had its better days. The host cooked us a meal last night, but the restaurant was nearly empty en we heard the sound of the microwave a little too often. If these hosts would stick to just managing this bed and breakfast, it would be a much better experience for guests (and hosts).
