Off to Invercargill

We were on our way again the next day, heading west toward Invercargill.  We followed the scenic route, making just one stop at slope point, the furthest point south on the South Island.  It was a bit anticlimactic, especially as the day was dreary.

We arrived in Invercargill and set up camp and settled in for the night.  The following day we visited the two major draws in the city...the water tower, which is famous for its architecture; and the local hardware store.  The water tower is like none I  have ever seen...The hardware store is ehays and sons and it is incredible.  It is huge and houses the usual hardware merchandise, as well as museum-like displays of motorcycles and cars.  Its claim to fame is that it has memorabilia from the "fastest Indian" the motorcycle which was constructed and ridden by a New Zealander.  This included a replica which I was able to get into for a photo...
