Oamaru

 
From Twizel we are heading to Oamaru, home of penguins and Steampunk.
On our drive there we stopped to see some Maori cave drawings.






The rocks were more interesting than the drawings, plus they’ve removed the ‘best’ ones to put in a museum!
Onward to Oamaru as the rain set in, we found a charity shop, where our original intention was to buy some tapes, yes, tapes of music. The radio in the car is very intermittent and Laura and I enjoy a sing song. We got a bit carried away and ended up buying loads! It was so cheap though! We could have packed out our car from this charity shop!
We didn’t come all this way just for a bargain, there’s steampunk sights to be seen!




And yellow eyed penguins to find.





We found a teeny tiny caterpillar, seals, cormorants and two yellow eyed penguins.








We got to our tent just before the rain started!
