OAMARU TO DUNEDIN

A lovely start to the day walking through the stunning botanic gardens in Oamaru. img_2234 Monty as always is in love with the birds on display, and we also came across another rabbit which was of major frustration for him as he was on the lead. I was told that only last week the fire brigade had to come out and dig up the gardens to retrieve a small dog who went down a rabbit hole! Now that is not something I had considered before! img_2242 We drove to Dunedin, which is not a huge drive, only a couple of hours, but lengthened with stops for walks, and attempts to find parking near Overton house. Overton is a gorgeous Victorian house which I last visited with my parents when I was all of about 12 years old, so I would like to get to see it tomorrow morning as we couldn’t get a large enough parking space for Flash Harry today. I visited a few galleries and antique and junk shops today in Dunedin, but only managed to find a set of 4 port glasses to go with the decanters that I got at the antique fair in Christchurch a week ago. Everything else I looked at seemed expensive after Christchurch and Oamaru. This is us finishing our 10km round walk to St Kilda to look at a trader’s store, alas no bargains to be found. img_2247
