Dunedin - Manapouri

We spent this morning exploring Dunedin and enjoyed seeing some of the lovely old buildings.  We walked around the Octagon and surrounding area.

We visited the First Church (Presbyterian) and saw a lovely tapestry.

We went to the Otago Settlers Museum which was really interesting.  I tried on a crinoline frame (I'm glad I don't have to wear one) and Alan tried a pennyfarthing (with help).

We also visited St Paul's Cathedral, where we enjoyed part of an organ recital.  The organ has more than 3,500 pipes and the music was amazing.

This afternoon we drove through some very pretty rural countryside to Manapouri, where we've set up in a very nice park for the night.  Tomorrow we are doing a tour of Doubtful Sound.
