Tuesday on the Otago Peninsula

We are just back at camp after a fabulous day on the peninsular. Through Juliette being transformed into an albatross, we learnt about this mighty bird, before heading off to the observatory to see three chicks in their nests, waiting for their parents to return with a meal. We also saw and learnt about the disappearing gun and the Maori heritage of this beautiful place. Next stop was Larnach's Castle, where we were wowed by the majesty and interesting history of this awesome place. We were thrilled to bump into a special friend there. We are now having some down time before an early dinner, then it's back on the buses, with the Year 7s heading off to see the little blue penguins and the Year 8s into the Octagon for a hair raising tour!

And of course 'the dab'.
