A while back Dad emailed me a crossword clue about some rocks along the Southern Island coastline that were supposed to be really old, impressive and peculiar. We visited them, they were 2 of these 3 things. Old and peculiar. Crosswords indeed.

AT jumping for joy at the sight of some rocks.

The Moeraki rocks were essentially a handful of boulders sat in some sand. Fair enough. They even wanted money for us to see them! We refused, but did succomb to purchasing some delicious ice-creams. The sundries man, that's where they always get you.

We set off again, back through Central Otago (the region where I live) to QT. The scenery here is cool - wide wild grass expanses. It's where a lot of Rohan was set in LOTRs. Didn't see many horses like.

"Riders of Rohan, what news from the Ridermark?"

Got some fancy looking skies as the sun began to set.

Our final stop before home was at St. Bethans - a canny looking blue lake. Bueno.
So we finally arrived home after 4 days on the road. Was really good to get out and see more of parts of the country that I hadn't seen yet and to share that with AT was especially cool. Roadkill count got to 57. Fact.
