Today we had our first shore excursion where we left the ship. We returned to Port Chalmers and Dunedin for a tour of the Olveston House and the botanic gardens. Olveston House was interesting, filled with antiques from its original owners. The highlight of the day was the trip to the gardens, where there are acres of gardens, winding paths, greenhouses, and more. There was a Japanese garden, small lake, and a creek running through the middle. We would have loved to have more time here, but it was a chilly day for these SoCal wimps!
