    Lucked out at this hostel as there was only me and one other lady in our 4 share. It was great for 2 but might have been small with more. Slept great. Kitchen small too but had some nice picnic tables outside to eat. Very convenient to Botannical Gradens behind...which were VERY nice and short walk to bus station...maybe 10 minutes.

    Beautiful morning again and off to Christchurch for Christmas. We were told that there were a couple of really interesting stop offs on our way, so we had a plan to drive leisurely up the coast do the visits and arrive in Christchurch for dinner.

    On Monday afternoon Teresa did her Cadbury tour and I explored Dunedin's Victorian rail station and the harbour before returning to the Cadbury cafe for an amazing hot chocolate and a chocolate weetbix traybake slice. We had to rush off to Oamaru to get to the hostel before reception closed as we hadn't booked. It was quite an easy drive and we got …

    ... at home...again the photos don't do it justice. Then we went to the Opera House for the lights show. It is pretty spectacular with the variations in colour and pattern. We then got back to the campsite slightly hungry so made a quick meal of pasta and went to bed. Please don't be concerned we haven't gone into alcohol withdrawal just yet...that's later today! Off down to Oamaru for a bit of shopping and then to drive down the coast to find a recommended sea food cafe! Till we meet ...

    ... bins! We were then taken to the LBP colony, where we all sat in a grandstand waiting for the LBPs to return home from their day at sea. These are the smallest penguins in the world and average 30cms long. They only come onto land under the cover of dark so we waited patiently until 9:40 before the first ones arrived. They form rafts of 2-100 penguins at sea and travel in together for safety. It's a pretty covert ...

    ... t resist on buying the dogs a treat. I think we felt like we could really relate to them. We made some lunch, a couple of toasties, then finished off planning and packing. We had said our goodbyes this morning, and as they weren't going to be around to drop us into town, Sharon had arranges for Bev to pick us up and drop us down to the bus. Even though we had only met Bev a couple of times, even she welcomed us so warmly and wished us luck and gave us a hug before they headed ...
