In less than a minute, I was confronted by all these! Tell me, how can I enjoy my breakfast with so many eyes looking? (>_<)
Just when we left Tekapo, we had a picture stop at this beautiful Lake Pukaki, not very far from Tekapo. Gosh, I was astounded!
Finally arrived into Oamaru....Had a light lunch before we tried our luck in finding my long coveted mission.
My mission of visiting a sunflower field has finally been accomplished today, after many years of searching. You have no idea how delighted I was when I saw this sea of yellow. I was over the moon, back and over the sun!! I was like a mad cow climbing over the fence (with owner's permission) running across the thick and long grassland towards the sunflowers. Any road blocks would be kicked out of the way, no mercy! Muahahahaha.
After the sunflower craze, we drove back to our motel for a cool down. The sweltering hot weather was just too much to take I felt like I was going to melt away and desperately needed a cool shower and some rest.
Later, we drove about 25 mins to Moeraki Boulders where you could find many big dinosaurs’ eggs lying along Koekohe beach. Ok lah, there are not dinosaurs’ eggs, but some sort of huge, spherical heavy (several tonnes) stones which have been exposed as a result of erosion from the cliffs along the beach. Quite an interesting sight really.
As we were about to leave Moeraki to stuff ourselves with instant noodles for a quick fixed in our motel, an impromptu decision brought us to this one and only restaurant in Moeraki for dinner, and boy wasn't I glad we did that. The food was just incredibly scrumptious. It was heavenly!
