We have just come "home" again after a fabulous three day weekend in Dunedin. We have been meaning to explore up that way sometime and this weekend seemed like the one. We firstly went along the northern side of the Otago Peninsula and "discovered" Carey Bay. Of course that meant stopping at the Carey Bay Hotel for a drink. We thoroughly enjoyed the coast road and Aramoana and the Sealion on the sandy beach. We shopped and dined, then visited the Otago Peninsular. The visit through Larnoch Castle was rather over priced but a oncer and the photos and scenery from there were stunning. We went all the way to the Gannet colony at the end and saw nesting birds and some seals. Today we drove home through Lawrence which is a quaint little old town which began as a gold mining town and has free wifi all through the main street as an attraction to tourists to stop. of course we stopped for coffee and wifi.
Photos to follow.
