One of my favorite things to do when traveling is to check out the neighborhoods and houses. We stopped in Akaroa, NZ, and found it to be totally charming. I loved these cottages with the tin roofs.
Since it is the middle of summer there now, the flowers and gardens were in full bloom.
This one, complete with the picket fence was my favorite. I wasn't sure if the 1876 on the sign was the house number, or age of the original house. It was probably the house number.
It was beautifully served, but still I wondered to myself how bad it could be. Maybe it was the wine that gave me the courage to give it a go. It wasn't THAT bad. They say it tastes like chicken, but I'm not so sure. It was chewy, so I just swallowed my little piece, and washed it down with more wine. At least I can say I tried it, which is more than one person in our group can say. Right, Kelly?
My sisters camera had a better zoom than mine did, so she shared her photos. I could see the little dots (sheep), but couldn't get good pics of them. I was told by a local that the sheep population is way down from what it used to be. I still like any place that has more sheep than people.
More to come, but for now I need to get back to model stitching.
