|Bluff, New Zealand
Bluff is the southern-most point of New Zealand, and home to Bluff oysters, which some claim as the best in the world. Sadly we didn't get to taste any when we were there as it was the wrong time of year. Ah well, next time. We had a fabulous holiday in New Zealand a few years ago with the extended family. We spent Christmas Day in Dunedin, where it was 16C while at home when we rang them, it was nearly 40C! We tried to buy prawns on Christmas Eve as we do here, and were disappointed to find that the only fish market around was closed! Clearly, customs are different in other countries:)
Mr P. and I drove off further south by ourselves, to Invercargill. We were freezing our little Queensland buns off, while the locals told us it was a lovely balmy day at 14C, and were swanning around in tee-shirts. We then headed down to Bluff, to the famous signpost at Stirling Point which shows you how far you are from anywhere! How I would have loved to hop on a ferry or into a light plane to head further south to Stewart Island. I have to see those rare penguins one day!
I am joining in with Fiona from Tiffin Bite-Sized Food Adventures and other bloggers to share a travel photo and its story. This month, the letter B is our beacon to go by. Check out the other photos and stories in the link, and have fun reading about fabulous places.
