A ferry across the harbour

One of Christchurch's nearby towns, Diamond Harbour, is a 30-minute drive away from Lyttelton by car, but only a 10-minute ride away by boat.


Hence - a commuter-type ferry.


And so me and the kids had ourselves a Diamond Harbour morning today.

We left the car at Lyttelton and boarded the ferry whilst checking out large ships moored at Lyttelton port...



...we enjoyed the 10-minute ride over to Diamond Harbour...




...we spent the morning at a Diamond Harbour beach throwing rocks in the water and looking for little crabs hiding under stones...











...we looked back across the harbour towards Lyttelton port...


...and then we just took the ferry back...






...and had lunch at home and now everyone's down for a nap.

A morning well spent.
