Akaroa Harbour

Just back from spending Easter in Akaroa on Banks Peninsular. Here are a couple of landscape sketches. The top one is a view from high up on the ridge road looking down on the harbour. And below a sketch from the boat club past the lighthouse with the 'Sun Princess' in the distance. Akaroa is taking all of the cruiseliner visits since the earthquake out Lyttelton out of business. Several thousand new tourists in town every other day must be a real bonus for local business.
