Oα Good Friday, the weather was dull and unpromising up to the even ing, when a violent hailstorm broke over Akaroa and the Bays, the hail stones being very largo. Heavy rain set in for a short time, and then cleared away. The bail lay on the ground some inches thick for several hours Two more hailstorms were experienced—one at midnight and the other at 2 a.m. on Saturday. A high wind set up on Saturday morning, and as it was very cold the prospects of a pleasant Eastar seemed very re I mote. However, before midday, on Saturday, the gale had blown itself I out, and the afternoon was very pleas ant, if cold. Easter Sunday was a perfect day, and literally hundreds were out on the harbour for excursions. Easter Monday was just as delightful a day, and the holiday makers should have congratulated themselves on perfect holiday weather All the launches in the harbour were requisitioned to carry parties to Tifeao, Wainui, and the other favourite pic nic resorts. A large number of visi tors spent Raster in Akaroa, and on Saturday many people had difficulty in obtaining accommodation at all. An exceptionally large number of motors came over to Akaroa on Sunday and Monday.
