Sam – we have seen a number of interesting cars and trucks whilst we have been travelling in New Zealand and here are some pictures of them.
This is an old car, we think it is a Singer Sunbeam. We saw it in an old mining town we went to.
We saw this large cement mixer in Dunedin near a building site.
We saw this big dumper truck in a gold mine.
This is an American Chevrolet pick-up truck which Nana Pat saw in Invercargill.
When we were in Wanaka there was a rally for old cars and we saw all of the following in that town. Some of them are about 90 years old (older than Nana Pat and Papa Paul !)
As well as cars, we have seen some interesting animals
This is a Male Deer – ask Dada how we know it is a male deer
This peacock wanted us to take a picture of its head and not its tail because it was moulting (loosing its tail feathers)
This Pig stopped eating briefly to let us take its picture
This turkey is wondering why we want to take its picture
This Cockerel was in charge of all of the chickens when we saw it.
What animal do you think this is? It has just had its fleece cut and was probably feeling a bit cold.
This bird is a Parakeet, we think he is asleep.
These two birds are Keas
This is a Kereru – a type of New Zealand Pigeon.
We have also seen lots of penguins like this, they are very rare and are called Yellow Eyed Penguins.
We have also seen lots and lots of fur seals and sea lions.
These two are sleeping on the beach in the sun.
We hope you like these pictures – see you soon
Love Nana Pat and Papa Paul
