Small town sights

I have recently been in the Strath Taieri area 
walking part of the Otago Rail Trail.
Below are some photo's we took in Middlemarch, 
the little town we stayed in

A sculpture made from bolts from old railway sleepers.

Around the corner another one, a moa, 
made from old horseshoes. Moas were a 
large bird, native to New Zealand, now extinct.

Two 'older' people with a bicycle made for two :)

Young Clydesdale's.

And because you either end or begin 
your journey at Middlemarch here is the
 starting/ending point to the rail trail.

joining Amy for:
Five on Friday

Have a great week,


  1. I love the robot sculpture! So cute! And the Clydesdales are gorgeous! What fun a bicycle built for two special people!

  13. I just saw that you lost your kitty on January 10. I had to let my Tiki go to kitty heaven on January 24. I'm still crying, and I'm sure you must be also. There's nothing so sweet as burying your face in kitty fur.

  14. Oh, I'm so glad you had such a nice time. Looks like a very lovely place to visit! Love the bicycle built for two.
