September17 – 20 
 We decided to ‘take to the road’ for the Dunedin and Invercargill shows rather than travelling back to Christchurch in between.  So we hired a motorhome and loaded it up with stock and our personal gear and headed south.  After the Dunedin Show we went inland to Cromwell for a night (Monday night).

 Then we drove through Central Otago (Kawarau Gorge and Lake Wakatipu) to Te Anau for a night (Tuesday night).

Lunch break at Kingston, Lake Wakatipu

 Then round the southern coast through Manapouri, Tuatapere, Riverton and round to overnight at Curio Bay in the Catlins (Wednesday night).

Camping at Curio Bay

Set up day we went to Bluff, had a feed of fresh fish and oysters (as you do in Bluff), and did our set-up.  Brilliant fun – definitely gypsies again next year!!!
