To Oamaru

We drove north today to Oamaru, short on kilometers but long on views of the Otago Coast once we turned onto the Beach Road.

The receding waters of this week's record rains were apparent in a few spots, this one minor. In some places workers were still shoveling clumps of earth and grasses off the roadway.

Great swaths of the Pacific meet farms on this coast. Someone told us that in NZ you're never more than 100 km away from water and I believe it.

We're staying here, at a campground right on the harbor.

 A walk on the esplanade this afternoon.

 Late afternoon light on the harbor. Sleep well, campers...
