We drove through Ettrick on 17 April, returning from Roxburgh. You may remember I shared rock photos recently from Rocky Roxburgh. Same day. Ettrick is a tiny settlement on our route, the last Central Otago town before we take the Moa Flat route home to Tapanui. The area is mostly orchards and farms. These are orchard photos. Pure autumn!

Apples ready for harvest.

Apple orchard context. Everything ready for the next day’s picking, I guess.
