Christmas was spent at Hanmer this year. A beautiful thermal springs area of North Canterbury, Hanmer has been a relaxing place for me for many years, a place to get away from the stresses of life.
On the doorstep of the Southern Alps that divide the South Island east from west, Hanmer is usually one of the hottest in the South Island, along with Alexandra in Central Otago.
Abby came along, too. Abby is my cat and she travels wherever I travel and she gets to enjoy many different things, such as running up and down trees and down rabbit holes whenever we stop somewhere for a break.
This photo, above, shows Abby enjoying the views of Hanmer all the way over towards the Lewis Pass and the Southern Alps.
