Anything for food!
Left Timaru this morning and continued our drive south towards Oamaru. Turned off to Waimate to make an impromptu stop at the wallaby park. We were greeted by a very eccentric lady who was hilarious! She showed us how to feed the wallabies and then let us wander around the pens to see and feed them. Some were more brave than others and some even held your hand to make sure you didn't take the food away!

At the end she told us to:"go sit down and shut your eyeballs!" Then she brought us out a tiny little baby wallaby to cuddle; Freya's face was a picture and she wanted one desperately!

Abby thought it was very cute and cuddled it a lot!!

When we were finished she just rolled up the sack and went and put it in the trolley, We were startled how confidently she handled the baby!

This evening wrapping up warm to see the Penguins come ashore at Oamaru.

Yesterday's evening we went to an Indian restaurant and the food was delicious. Whilst at the restaurant Abby dropped her iPhone down the toilet!!!!!

We laughed and she cried. The restaurant gave us a container of rice so that we could dry it out!!!

Following the trauma of the iPhone being dropped down the loo, here it is on the road to recovery inside a container of rice, courtesy of the local Indian restaurant.
