My favourite images of the small waterside town of Akaroa.
Akaroa, which is less than an hour drive from Christchurch, promotes itself as a French settlement. But French street names and buildings are as French as Akaroa gets. Even the only French restaurant in town was burned down last year.
Nevertheless, the real highlights were the scenery and the quirky buildings around town. Spot the light house. The wharf. And the shop that claims to sell everything.
