Day 3: Oamaru and Moeraki
After a proper night’s sleep, it was time to hit the road with Craig. We drove down State Highway 1, first stopping in Oamaru. There we find Steampunk HQ.
Craig and I tried our hands at the Metagalactic Pipe Organ.
There was all sorts of other random stuff in the museum.
See the full album for more.
We walked around the Victorian Precinct a bit, stopping in at the New Zealand Whisky Collection.
Then we drove down to Moeraki. First, I should note this is the other side of the Pacific Ocean than I’m used to.
We looked at the Moeraki Boulders. These are surprisingly-spherical boulders deposited on the beach.
Next up were yellow-eyed penguins and fur seals at Katiki Point. (You’ll have to click through and then view the original-resolution photos to see the penguins.)
Dinner was at Fleur’s Place by the harbor.
