My pommepal did a couple of splendid posts on Dunedin and the Chinese Gardens. There are a few photos I would like to add to supplement hers. Also even if I sometimes fail I never fail to try.  That is the main reason why these photos needed to be posted.

This is the fantastic entrance.

I often say things without thinking that is something I will have to be mindful of, I am always quoting the Buddha’s Eight Fold Path but this does not stop me from wandering off the path when I am enjoying myself.  Unmindful of all the consequences I burble on and then have to follow up with Right Effort.

Pauline’s blog is full of interesting facts and if you have not visited it you have missed a real treat. I could write an illustrated book on Dunedin. The old railway station’s amazing architecture, marvellous mosaic and superb stained glass.

A huge mosaic, I noticed the train wheel had eight spokes.

We had a photo feast and can only show you the tip of the ice burg, that’s not a good cliché as it was a fine sunny day. Better than an over worked saying I could have said I can only show you a mini morsel that would fit in with my alliteration.

Pauline adds a nice touch to my snap shots.

Like they say on post cards ‘wish you were here’ maybe our posts will inspire you to visit Dunedin. My main reason for my blog is to motivate and rev your motor up.

Pauline pumps my peddle and gets my motor running, go to  her blog  , hit the links, go for it, its an inspiration.

At the bus stop we end on the right note.
