We have been out and about today - picked up by our friends, and driven down to Oamaru where we had lunch looking over the harbour. Then drove further south to Clarks Mill. They open especially for our group, and cranked up the machinery for us. Lots of photos taken indoors and outdoors there......
......Borrowed from Wikipedia - an important industrial landmark in beautiful North Otago houses a four-storeyed mill - New Zealand's only surviving water-powered flour mill with early machinery still substantially intact. It was built in 1866.
Then onto an incredible place, Kuraheka Estate to explore all their many buildings, and we were so fortunate to be allowed into the lavish homestead. Lots of photos taken here too.
I've gone for the garden using the Pep Ventosa technique - this one 20 images.....those that follow me on Facebook will see another one in mono of a derelict building using 30 images.
We never got home until after 6 pm, feeling a bit jaded but that's good as its been a really lovely day....Doug enjoyed the mill, its history and workings.
