So long since my last post. I've been away for a week to Dunedin, Stewart Island and Invercargill and came home with a terrible flu which kept me out of action for another ten days. Anyway... here are some photos from the trip. It was cold - plenty of frost around - but mostly sunny days. The highlight was visiting Ulva Island - a native plant and bird sanctuary about a ten minute boat ride from Stewart Island and meeting some people panning for gold at Te Waewae Bay. Remote and beautiful places.

Best meal: From the Howl at the Moon Cafe, Gore - the vegetarian beef salad
