After a long, narrow winding road with nothing but farmland (beautiful yes but boring) and brief glimpses of ocean through rain, we arrived in Invercargill. This town is nuts for motorcycles and we wandered through one of the most complete hardware stores I’ve ever seen – E. Hayes & Sons Hardware. They had an amazing display of vintage cycles including Burt Munro’s bikes (remember the movie “The World’s Fastest Indian”?) http://www.ehayes.co.nz/. We discovered Pita Pit for lunch, similar to Subway but with pita bread, with more choices and more tasty.
I’ve included a photo of the longest shoe fence we’ve seen so far, and Teapot World with the largest collections of, well yes, teapots.
