Kaikoura (1)

Wednesday 28/02

Vlog by Jules: see below




By me:

Weather is as expected: cloudy (light grey).

After breakfast, the kids do 2 homeschooling sessions. Isabelle organizes our trip in Patagonia, mainly the W circuit in Torres del Paine and hike on the Perito Moreno glacier (Fitz Roy will be difficult apparently). I work on the blog. I also send the emails for the acceptance of Ludivine and Florence to St André for the next academic year (starting in September).

I receive an email regarding the repair of my camera. The good news is that they can repair it (but the cost is quite high: nearly 600 $). Let’s hope that they will be able to send it back to me (in Queenstown) before we leave NZ.

Another email that I receive is from ‘Seals Swim Kaikoura’ regarding my booking to swim with seals tomorrow. Due to the weather, they have to cancel tomorrow’s’ and after-tomorrow’s trips… We are so disappointed; we were looking forward to swimming with the playful seals, quite a unique experience. I quickly call ‘Dolphins Encounter’ to see if they still have available space to go and swim with dolphins tomorrow. Luckily, they still have one trip available at… 5:30am! I find it a bit weird since the sun only rises at 7am but it’s a 3-hour trip and by the time we are in the water the sun (or at least the light) should be there. Let’s see. I book the trip.

Lunch: salad.

I go with Isabelle and Ludivine to town, on foot. I must go to Dolphins Encounter to pay our activity of tomorrow (swim with dolphins).

On the way back, we buy sushi for tonight.

Chillax time until 6:30pm then our “ritual” in camping (as everywhere else in fact): shower, preparation of dinner (very much reduced in this case since we eat sushi), dinner, washing dishes, and then reading in bed.

We switch off the lights earlier today since we have to wake up before 5am tomorrow…
