We went to Timaru over Easter weekend, as we have since 2014. As always, it was a wonderful time of worshipping and hearing the Word preached, and spending time with many friends, both people we have known for a long time and those we just met for the first time. I took a few pictures of the spectacular scenery on the way and on the way home—but never took the time to pull my camera out of my purse while we were down there!
The sun rose while we were going through the mountains; here we are starting to head up toward Arthur’s Pass from the west.
After we went over Arthur’s Pass, as we approached Porter’s Pass, we noticed a thin line of snow just along the tops of the mountains.
Awhile later, once we were down on the plains, we looked back, and could see the other side of those same mountains!
We took a route we haven’t taken before, and got to enjoy the gorgeous Rakaia Gorge.
On our way home, we enjoyed the spectacular scenery again. This is between Porter’s and Arthur’s Passes, again.
