So our last full day in NZ, on this trip! Tuesday turns out to be a pretty lovely day, sunnyish and no rain! We decide we will head along the Otago Peninsula to visit Lanarch Castle, and check out the views back to Dunedin Harbour. It's a lovely drive along the windy peninsular road hugging the coast line.

So we took our lunch to the observation car and remained there for the rest of the ride.
