Romantic, French, Akaroa

Akaroa in the background
I enjoyed the stroll along the strand, the coffee shops, the general store, and the art galleries.
It was a beautiful day in the village of Akaroa. This was our second night on the South Island and a pleasantly quiet place to refresh. I started knitting a sock for my dad. It grew throughout the trip north, and was a perfect fit by the time I arrived home in Auckland. 
This is my favorite shop. The couple were so lovely to talk to.  They obviously love what they do. I bought an Emma Bridgewater cookie tin.
