Driving back toward Port Chalmers from Aramoana on 31 March we got this fine view of the port with a cruise ship and the huge container hoists. The road runs alongside Otago Harbour affording lovely views on a fine day such as this was, interesting little bays and houses, and views of small boats at... Continue Reading →
