Great series Marg. I remember them well.
The town of Moeraki is in the background of your capture; a lovely little fishing village with a very famous restaurant called Flur's Place; a very interesting place to visit from a photographic point of view too.
I stayed on a weekend break once and explored, must post some more captures that I have of the area.

Hi John .... I loved Moeraki and we were fortunate to met Fleur. She is a very interesting and nice lady :)

That is great Marg. You are right she is both nice and very interesting; and has lived a very full and interesting life. You probably know, she used to own Oliver's in Cromwell also. Excellent coverage of our country once again.

I love this series Marg. My grandchild call them dinosaur eggs. Fleur is an amazing person. We are so lucky to have so many amazing places close to home here

Thank you for all the comments Shirley . There appeared to be a lot more tourists there this visit .... it was hard to get a clear view !
May 27 2013 10:04 GMT teddybear2
There has been a huge increase in tourists since I have been here Margaret. It is really good for the region. They also love the historic precinct
May 27 2013 10:24 GMT MargNZ
Interesting Shirley ... we didn't get to Oamaru this time but I am pleased to hear that tourism is going well there :)

I can imagine its a popular place for tourist, Marg! I know I would visit this place if I would visit..;-)
May 30 2013 20:59 GMT MargNZ
Thanks Annamaria . I think I prefer it when the tide is in :)
May 30 2013 21:05 GMT Annamaria
But then you wouldn't see the boulders, Marg...or aren't they covered up by water when the tide is in??
May 30 2013 21:08 GMT MargNZ
No , not completely Annamaria . It does depend on how high the tide is though.
Thank you for all your comments :)
