Sarah and I at the crib

Sarah and I headed to my parents crib (holiday house) in Toko Mouth for the night, before heading south to the Catlins for some site seeing.

Julia’s visit

Julia Rinck who I met in Germany last year came to visit our lab for four months. I picked her up in Christchurch and on the way back we visited the Baby Blue penguin colony in Oamaru. It was quite late before they came ashore and we weren’t allowed very close, so unfortunately the photos are barely visible.

A week later we headed to the top of Mount Cargill to see the city, but in typical Dunedin style a cloud came through and blocked the view :(
