These are some scenes I snapped as we drove the scenic route around Southland.
I'm still surprised when I see black swans in the ocean.
This is a picture from the bottom of Baldwin Street, the steepest residential street in the world. The white car most of the way up had to come back down to the jeers of the onlookers.
On the other hand, we were cheered as we made it to the top of the street. I guess the residents are used to tourists trying to get up the hill.
At the top is this lovely monochrome mural of the street.
And, of course, the view from the top.
