Fois Na Mara

Labour weekend walkabout - 26th Oct 2015

Whilst our wonderful guests came to see Neil Diamond (I'm sorry but I can't help singing...... Sweet Caroline... da da da.....) performing at the Forsyth Barr Stadium, in Dunedin over the weekend, we took the opportunity of the very fine weather to go off to discover some of our hidden gems.

We started with a good walk up Mount Cargill to get some fantastic views of Dunedin city, Blueskin Bay, the Otago Peninsula, Flagstaff and Swampy to name but a few.  A very rewarding morning tea was had at the summit.  We've done this walk a few times but I always forget how stunning the view is.  Well worth the sweat!

Monday took us on a new adventure, Aramoana.  I'm ashamed to say I've never been before.  No justifiable reason, other than if I'm looking for a great quiet beach with the chance to spot some wildlife then I'll always go to Allan's Beach just near Portobello.  But it's always good to discover new places.....
The drive to Aramoana only took us 40 minutes, and passing through the very cool Port Chalmers, quaint Careys Bay and gorgeous Deborah and Hamilton bays along the way made this a great place to visit. 
We weren't disappointed with what we saw at the end of the road.  Quiet and unassuming, but with something magical....... this may have to be my new place to go...
