Astrolabe in Akaroa
At the beginning of November we took our Astrolabe domestic team, together with partners, down to Akaroa to thank everyone for all their hard work and support over the past year -- and because we also like getting together and drinking nice wine.
For those not from New Zealand, Akaroa is a small French settlement on Banks Peninsula - it is not far from Christchurch. Simon's family settled on the Peninsula in 1850 at Little Akaloa, so Simon provided us all with an interesting commentary.
A magical weekend was had - with a harbour cruise on the Friday night with Akaroa Dolphins
, a day at The Akaroa Cooking School
, a picnic, and some wonderful dinners at both La Thai
and The Little Bistro, Akaroa
