Woo hoo! :)

Belinda and I went on the 6:45am whale-watching trip - ugh!  It actually turned out to not be that bad getting up early & getting out there.  It was a GORGEOUS day!  So different than yesterday.  And we had such a great whale-watching trip!!!  We saw one sperm whale and literally HUNDREDS of dolphins!!!  When I get my videos uploaded, I have one of a dolphin that just kept jumping & jumping & jumping out of the water.  It was so amazing to see so much out there!!!

After the whale watching trip, Belinda & I just hung out in Kaikoura for a little while longer to enjoy the gorgeous day. 

I'm really glad we got to spend some time together again.  We had so much fun!!   And I'm glad I'll get to see her one more time before I leave.  I will be flying out of Christchurch in a week & we'll meet up once again.

I'm now off to Hanmer Springs to meet up with Lizzie's mom - a.k.a., Mama Peeps & I think I'm going to do some trout fishing with her tomorrow.  FUN!

A huge MWAH to all the dolphins & to Belinda for such a fun time hanging out again!!!  Woo hoo!!!!  :)
