We have been very busy the last couple of days. As I write this Albuquerqueans are still trying to digest their Thanksgiving dinner. We had ours last night on board the ship as we are a day ahead of you. We spent Thanksgiving Day in Christ Church. It was a nice day touring the countryside. It is a very big city and pretty, but like all of these cities it is essentially new. Albuquerque was founded 150 years before most of these towns. The museums are nice and well done. The countryside surrounding Chrishtchurch consist of the broad Cantebury plains that are taken over completely by agriculture.
Today we spent visiting truly beautiful coastal areas outside of Dunedin. I have never before seen more beautiful beaches and ocean views than we observed today.
Now, we head for two days cruising in and out of fjords and sounds before arriving in Burnie, Tasmania.
