This fifth and final gallery features scenery as we traveled from Queenstown to the east coast of New Zealand, and then north toward Christchurch. The town of Oamaru was one of our favorite places in New Zealand. We visited Oamaru on our 2011 trip on a brief one night stopover. When planning this second trip we knew we wanted to return to Oamaru and spend a few days there. The town has such an interesting mix of experiences: beautiful public gardens, the best example of Victorian era architecture in the country, the seashore, a Blue Penguin colony, and Steampunk HQ.

I encourage everyone of you to visit New Zealand but, for now, I hope you enjoy the experience through my photographs.
