i’m not sure if this is telling us to do something beautiful, or suggesting that lyttelton was/is beautiful.  i suspect it’s a cry of desperation for the former

there’s plenty more photos to come and we’ll definitely be going again to see the rest of the stuff we didn’t have time for on this trip.
