We took the back way over the hills to Sumner today and stopped at Evans Pass to have a look at the view. The road down into Lyttelton is still closed, but you can drive to Sumner now.
They really do not want you going on this road. Quite frankly, you’d have to be quite mad to do so. We often wonder about the truck driver whose tanker was on this road at the time of the quake. Did he go back for the truck, or did someone else? I saw photos of it, but never heard anything more about it. It was one of the little side stories that intrigued us. Of course, we didn’t have power for weeks, so we missed a lot of media coverage of the earthquake.

We had a nice walk around Sumner today and I took quite a few pics. Sumner changes so much now.
