Moeraki Boulders

We had a fun outing one Saturday in November. We took a drive north to the town of Oamaru for lunch. Along the way we stopped to check out the Moeraki Boulders. When we got to the beach, there they were..... enormous, giant boulders. They were amazing to see. We had fun dodging small waves as we walked among the big orbs. Some of them had completely broken down..... but most of them remained intact. We tried to rearrange the beach but were unsuccessful.     (

When we got to Oamaru we had an enjoyable visit to the wharf area. Fish & chips at The Galley was wonderful. At the adjacent public park we found several fun things to see ..... including the largest bicycle we've ever seen. It must belong to the person who put the boulders on the beach.

Carving soft stone blocks into amazing sculptures. The touch of the master's hand at work.

On the way home we had to stop and take a photo of this field of amazing yellow blooms that really caught Sister Edward's eye.
