Shaken

We had a beautiful day sightseeing Banks Peninsula when another quake hit Christchurch: magnitude 5.8 at 1:58pm local time. This has been followed by numerous aftershocks, including a 6.0 at 3:18pm. The MQZ quake drum looked like this:

Tomorrow is another day (probably filled with aftershocks).

Traveling with friends and family, view from Green Lake towards Lake Tarawera, North Island, New Zealand. Time for walks, nice meals and setting R aside (although I have a few drafts for the blog soon to be published). Now back in the South Island we prepare for a great weekend with more walks, food and friends. Merry Christmas.
