The day after we flew to Christchurch, we rented a car with our friends Julie & Susie and drove to the Sunrise Beach House on Rarangi Beach just outside Blenheim. We rented this place for five nights as a place to hangout until our flight to Sydney. The beach is a rocky beach with lots of flat rocks perfect for skipping.
Here's a shot of the end of the beach about a ten minute walk down from our house. Actually the time to walk this depends on how many cool rocks you found along the way.

Blenheim is the heart of the Marlborough wine region where they are famous for their Sauvignon Blancs. That's one of the reasons we chose to visit this area, so we could do some wine tasting. Here we are enjoying a some wine and appetizers on the deck of our house.
