In the morning at check out we discovered the vintage Ericsson telephone hanging on the wall. A real beauty from 1916 and still functional!
Our first stop was Norsewood, a town build mainly by Scandinavian Immigrants.
After Norsewood we passed Dannevirke, another town influenced by Scandinavian immigrants.
Next stop was the Pukaha Mount Bruce National Wildlife Center.
After Masterton we stopped at the Awaiti Gardens in Carterton.
After Featherston we drove a very windy section of the SH2 across the Rimataka Hill towards Pakuratahi. Look in Google Earth the today’s trip for this section.
