So Taniamarree showed me around the local area - Bluff, Riverton, etc. I visited the Southern most point of mainland New zealand, the very windy Bluff Hill and a beach with invisible nesting seabirds! I also wandered around Invercargill myself visiting Queen's Park & the aviary and a couple of nice little shops too. I also got invited to a home BBQ which was very tasty & a fun evening, although the beach was a tad on the windy side!! 😊

Saturday morning I met up with the Stray bus again heading over to Dunedin. First stop was to visit some local sealions, most of which were dozing happily but one didn't like us on it's beach very much! We also found the McLean Falls (as recommended by the hostel lady) which was quiet impressive! And Daisy had fun climbing to the top and dissappearing behind the water! We saw the petrified forest at Curio Bay, which was very cool, but no penguins there. Then we stopped for lunch around the corner at Porpoise Bay, a pretty spot but again failed to see any Hector's Dolphins (the smallest kind) in the bay. We also stopped at Florence Hill where we

got a view of another pretty beach! In Dunedin several people headed off for a Brewery tour whilst the rest of us tried to cook in the tiny tiny kitchen! Not the best place we stayed at! Didn't really get to see much of Dunedin but it seemed a pretty standard town.
