Timaru botanical gardens

This was another good stopping point between Dunedin and Christchurch heading north up the coast. We had planned to go to the beach, but passed the gardens and stopped there instead.

Was a lovely place for a picnic, really pretty gardens, a nice place for a leg stretch from driving and for Evie to have a good crawl.

Sadly time to leave without time for the beach as well (it looked nice as we glimpsed it driving past) to get up to Christchurch in time for some dinner.
