Sunday - cherries, shoes, music and much else...

I woke on Sunday morning to rain, mist rolling down the hills and an understanding of why there was an electric blanket on the bed! However, as I drove back towards Dunedin (missed the turning for the one castle in New Zealand - Larnach) it got brighter and brighter and it was warm by the time I parked for a walk round.

There are some fabulous buildings - especially the railway station and I laughed out loud when I saw the council logo - it's a highlander and a Maori either side of a crest. I hope the photo is clear.

On my wander I found a car charger for the bb and the holiday people had found me an adpator so communication was once again possible. When I was planning my trip there had been a lot of controversy about whether I should go to Queenstown - beautiful but commercial. Majority view was that it was worth it so that's where I was headed. You'll have to wait a while to hear about the cherries etc...........
