Had one warm, comfy night when we overnighted in Christchurch in two lovely big rooms and all slept soundly. I had lost a tooth so Karen suggested a dentist that was virtually next door. Their dinner suggestion was also spot on and a a couple of minutes walk away. We had grandchildren with us who had a wonderful time playing and dancing to their jukebox and cuddling the sausage dogs.
It was easy to get to from the airport . This has been a particularly cold winter so Elm Tree House seemed like a wonderful warm sanctuary . Breakfast was lavish and delicious and Allan and Karen were so nice to the children and catered to their needs.
It was really interesting talking to Allan about the earthquake and aftermath. We will be back.
