We had a leisurely start to the day, and headed down towards the cost to Invercargill.  The weather kept threatening rain all day, but we were fairly fortunate.  We didn’t really get any more than a drizzle on us, despite seeing heavy rain in the distance at times.


View from farmland into one of the sounds in the distance, where it was raining, of course.


The old bridge at Clifden, which goes over the Waiau River.


Sheep, like the sand of the sea.


At Tuatapere, I noticed that there were two police cars parked at the station.  So I presumed that there can’t be more than two cars for such a small rural town, and proceeded at a more brisk pace for about half an hour.  However, we did stop at Te Waewae Bay to take a look at the beach.  It certainly wasn’t inviting us to take a swim – it was cold and windy.


I guess the locals think the surfing is good, as this is the welcome to Colac Bay.


Farming is very big in the south, and there are sheep everywhere you look.  And it is not a farm without a four wheeler and man’s best friend.

We drove into Invercargill via back roads, all of which were dirt.  We had lunch at a Thai place in town, and then headed to Bluff.


Two photos of Stewart Island.


We rode back to Invercargill and went to the museum cafe, where I availed myself of the 3G coverage and worked on these blogs for a couple of hours.
