Thursday in Dunedin

We are nearly at the end of a wonderful week away. Today we had fun at the Railway Station and Early Settlers Museum in the morning; one of the highlights was dressing up as early settlers. Then it was off to Carisbrook for a very impressive welcome, followed by lunch and a look around their new school. Climbing aboard the buses, we headed off to Edgar Sports Stadium for our sports challenge. Beckenham played superbly and displayed great sportsmanship. The result was 3 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss, so the trophy comes back to Christchurch. Next stop was the long awaited  Cadburys visit, yum! Thanks to Tim, we finished the afternoon with quick tour around Forsyth-Barr Stadium, pretty cool. Right now we have some kids at the beach and others tuning up for the camp concert. We'll see you all tomorrow around mid-afternoon. Check school-links in the afternoon for our ETA.

The Railway Station was a sight to behold.

A spot of juggling outside the Railway Station.

Learning about the people who sailed to Otago in the 1840s.

The Early Settlers Museum held many treats.

It was a hard life way back then!

Sharing kai after the welcome at Carisbrook.

Another 4 heads into the net.

Great game...

Hair nets, goodie bags full of chocolate treats and now we know how they get the chocolate buttons inside the Easter eggs!

A quick massage in the changing rooms at Forsyth-Barr.

Sharing sports results in an awesome setting.

Another fantastic day nearly over.
