What an absolute cracker of a day. Today I accompanied Photo Guy on a tiki-tour to Moeraki which is about an hour’s drive north of Dunedin. We had planned to go take some photos of the Moeraki Boulders and have a spot of lunch at Fleur’s Place. The weather was so beautiful and the wee township of Moeraki so picturesque that we wandering round there and took some photos there too. With my belly full of the freshest gurnard I have had in a while I watched fishing boats come into the jetty – sadly the photos just don’t do it justice.
As well as Moeraki we travelled slightly further up the coast to see the famous Moeraki Boulders – even got a bit of river fording practice in (hardly a river – but we did end up soaking to above the knees). The boulders were very popular today, but the tide was a little higher than we had planned and getting higher. After taking some photos we decided to head up the coast further to Oamaru to wander around the Victorian Precinct while we waiting for the tide to recede.
Oamaru has some stunning examples of Victorian architecture, with lots of stone work – I am going to need to get much better at taking architectural photos before I can really do it justice.
