Images from South Island -1
Here are just a few of the 100’s of photos that we took during our 6 weeks in South island.......in no particular order.
Kiwis just love old cars, motorbikes, tractors, etc. This one was seen in Geraldine but we saw many more as we toured around peaking in Franz Josef and Fox Glacier
When we saw about 10 vintage Rolls Royces
Trish had promised to pat the sheepdog memorial on the shores of Lake Tekapo, a tribute to the breeds part in developing sheep farming in NZ
Both Trish and Katie took lots of photos of the plant life as well as the wild life.
Ed Hillary, One of NZ’s great heros, a big man in all ways.
Another busy road...this one onthe road through the Lindis Pass, Central Otago.

A Tribute to the man who would eventually give his name to the internet!!!!
There is a hige difference between the mountains on the east side of the great divide and those on the west. Barren, dry and dusty hills here in Otago.
Sheep still play a big part in the economy of south island and there is in the order of 50 million sheep in NZ
Naseby, another old gold rush town with many of the original buildings still intact.
More sheep, more rolling hills and more empty roads en route to Dunedin.
