[travel|photos] New Zealand travelog recap – penny farthings and book binders and barrels
Still in Oamaru with this post. After cheesing and steampunking, we wandered off to tour the old town, including a visit to Michael O’Brien, traditional bookbinder. Where there were books and binding. And books.
We also checked out one of the local penny farthing dealers.
We also hit the city park by the harbor. Which was oddly arrayed, shall we say. Various of us took turns in the barrel. I learned a valuable lesson about physics, canes, and rotating surfaces. Sadly, my dance with the devil was not captured on digital.
Plus we went that evening to the Oamaru Blue Penguin Colony. Photography was not permitted, but we sure saw a lot of cute little guys scrambling up the beach, plus bonus fur seal humping around the rocks looking for an evening snack. The birds were cute as buttons and bone stupid. Afterward,
Tomorrow: The Kaikoura.
