A few more pitchas

A bunch of us went walkabout yesterday, including a visit to Baldwin Street:

Just south of Dunedin there's a beach, followed by this little point covered in igneous rock (shot through with quartz) which looks uncannily like petrified wood:

We wandered up north a little, to a lookout with nice views across to the peninsula, including this shot of Mackenzie Bay:

The lookout featured bumblebees (about 1.5cm long) and foxgloves:



We stopped in at the botanical gardens, which starred a kea and some brightly plumaged parrots (most of them Aussie):

The trip finished up near a second castle (“only castle in Nez Zealand”, hah!) with good views of Dunedin:
