Still catching up!
Photo 1 Oamaru was surprising, with some really grand buildings from a time when its prospects were on the up with the port facilities and a nearby gold rush. Sadly it didnt last and places like Christchurch rose to prominence instead. It declined and almost died before being recognised as a jewel. They have a great Victorian precinct as well as a another car museum and the Penny Farthing club Photo 2.
Photo 3 Determine to see penguins we went on the penguin experience close to Oamaru town. Here Chinese tourist denied the opportunity to photograph the real thing, are madly videoing the video, what more do I need to say.
Photo 4 to 6, Steam punk HQ mad building, but makes a change from mountains and waterfalls!
All our best,
Lynne and Alan
