    Once I left Dunedin on my way down to Invercargill, I had a lunch stop at Caroline's Bay in Timaru.
    Timaru is a port city of about 28'000 people and it's name means in maori 'the place of shelter'.
    Caroline's Beach is an ideal place to rest and swim during the summer time. There is a park along the beach and some attractions, including a landscaped piazza, where I took this picture from.

    Another good outing from Chirstchurch is to head south and visit the beautiful coastal towns of Oamaru, Timaru and Dunedin. Please visit my VT Dunedin page for more details of Dunedin.

    There is a nice Press Building located next to the Christchurch Cathedral at the city centre, good for photography and a short visit outside.

    If you can avoid the little kids playing inside and outside the cave rock tunnel at Sumner, you can get a nice photo :P

    Beyond the Manchester Street bridge, the Avon flows between two stately rows of tall poplar trees. The gazeebo shape structure is the landmark of Christchurch on most postcards.

    When in NZ, you will find these signs everywhere. We had to take this picture because you can see how far away we actually are from home. This particular place is called Cape Fowl Wind.
