At last a morning at leisure as we don't have to leave Dunedin until 12:00, although we did get up early to wash and dry our white hoodies ! After breakfast we went to admire the magnificent architecture of the railway station, had a look at St. Paul's Cathedral and bought presents for Matilda and Esme. We had a look in the Scottish shop which sold …

Eventually we arrive at a couple of benches where we sit in complete isolation, with only the sound of the skylarks in our ears and the most wonderful view over the lake to Mt Cook, which is completely clear with the exception of a single band of cloud across it.
