New Zealand 14 March: Team A - Kaikoura to Blenheim

A morning scene of the Kaikoura Ranges.

Sunrise from Kaikoura Township. Kaikoura is famous for its dolphins, whales and seals that inhabit the azure waters.

Many thanks to the Albatross Backpakers Inn for their wonderful accommodation - notice the charming, traditional architecture!

First stop Kaikoura Suburban School. A contingent of children runners (and the principal, plus two mums and a baby in pram!) welcomed us one kilometer from the school and ran in with us.

The children, full of joy, run in formation behind the torch - great team work!

Happy children that go to a school in view of a majestic backdrop. One child volunteered a remark to us that she really feels peace and happiness in Kaikoura Suburban School.

Next stop Hapuku School, a bilingual school that teaches Maori and English. After we sung our theme song the children responded with a traditional maori song with actions. We enjoyed that, and we were impressed by their spontaneous spirit when running with the World Harmony Run torch. After the Ceremony the World Harmony Run Team had some fun playing soccer and rugby with children too! Such a small school gave the team so much joy in return.

We loved the stunning mountains and coastline that graced our run towards Blenheim.

As we arrived in Blenheim we were greeted by a powerful Kiwi Rail train rolling past the local vinyards.

The excellent Colonial Motel Blenheim - freely provided by our most gracious hosts, Shona and Peter.
