From the ridiculous to the sublime

One of the things I love about New Zealand is that we can be driving along laughing at funny car licence plates (TEATRE), a bright green car called the Funky Pumpkin, a limestone statue of a sheep in the pasture outside Knitworks or the giant leaping salmon at Rakaia - and then we look up and spot the majesty of the mountains looming up. We've got a glorious view of the snow-clad Southern Alps as we drive. Photos make them look small and distant but beside us as we drive they're huge and wonderful.

We're also passing an alpaca stud: a few miles back I saw shaggy shorthorns.
