NZ 2019 days 2-4


After leaving our motorhome park at Christchurch, we headed for Oamaru but had to make a few stops along the way. Firstly we had to stop at Apollo Motorhomes to get a replacement smoke detector as the one we had dropped from the ceiling on the way to our first night stop. No problem they replaced it with a new unit and off we went. Now I am not going to bore you with what the rest of the day was like as it was filled with shopping for food and buying another doona as it's very cold here.

We arrived at Oamaru around 5.00 pm and went to our motorhome park of choice, the Harbour Tourist Park and you guest it, it's right on the harbour :) We have stayed here about 4 times now and it's run by a lovely lady by the name of Zena, yes Zena like the amazon warrior. It is a clean and modern park and is close to a kids playground and cafe so something for everyone. It is a short stroll to town and on Sundays has a farmers market near by and once a month there is a train that offers rides from the station in town to the Penguin colony at the end of marine parade and back. Just had a chance to take a quick phone pic of the sunset and then it was dark.

The next day we stayed at the park and went into town to have a look at the Farmers market and see the train running. Buy first I got up and took some sunrise images.

After visiting the market and seeing the train we went on a walk through Oamaru which you do by walking beside the river and under roads in tunnels. It is a nice walk and brings you out in a park where there are swings where our Son had a great time. On our walk back to the our motorhome, we went to our favourite cafe called the Galley which is on the harbour and has fantastic views and great potato wedges and hot cappuccinos which what a cold day was calling for. After we then had a rest, we went back into to town to the Steampunk HQ which we had visited on another trip. It has some really cool stuff in there and the imagination that some people have is endless. You could spend abut an hour in there and you have to look at the details in all the work. Try and work out what parts they used for the creations and you could be there for days :)
