A fine horse at Riverstone, found when I was poking around in the yard outside the gift shops. One of my recent posts had a photo of a cat near some pots – I’d only just taken the cat photo and turned around when I saw this equine wind vane that I’d somehow missed seeing until that moment.
Riverstone is just north of Oamaru and includes Riverstone Kitchen, extensive gardens and huge gift shops. East Otago, New Zealand
I also found this wonderful wind ornament that was a beautiful thing to see. It has multiple tiers of metal leaves and the wind catches them and makes them twirl. I saw it in a light breeze and two tiers were slowly twirling and one tier was still (individual tiers appeared to be independent of the others).
Here’s a view of part of the group of gift shops at Riverstone, taken by Nigel.
