Another well earned sleep in and we were off to Oamaru on the east coast about three and half hours drive from Christchurch, maybe 4 in a motor home.
We set off about 10.30 and started to think about our destination and how many times we have been here, which is 5 I believe. The town is quite large with a very nice little harbour which is home of blue eyed penguins and a large seal colony. On most nights you can lift up a row boat along the foreshore of the harbour and find a penguin sheltering under there. In fact the caravan park we are at tonight is frequented by little blue eyes every night as they waddle through the grounds and some have nests under the amenities block as we are right on the harbour. There is also quite a few old warehouses from days gone by that are filled with brewery's, antique shops, model railways and nick nack shops which you could spend a few leisurely exploring if you enjoy that sort of thing.
