Cherry??2009^_^Cherry??2009^_^There is a city in Oamaru on the South Island, where the smallest penguin in the world-the blue penguin. There are signs everywhere in Oamaru to warn the drivers to beware of penguins crossing the street. When I returned to the hotel tonight, I saw these little cuties staggering along the road.

闲庭漫步30闲庭漫步30Oamaru should be a place with historical accumulation. Although the development history here is not long, the locals can pay special attention to retaining various buildings with specific historical significance. Therefore, the entire city looks older and has a sense of historical vicissitudes. After seeing these buildings, visitors can arouse their curiosity to learn more about local history.

Beach
JING梅JING梅Oamaru penguin homing is one of the must-see sights when traveling to New Zealand. Oamaru’s blue-eyed penguin is the smallest penguin in the world. Its feathers are gray-blue. It is only 20 to 30 centimeters tall and weighs about one kilogram. It’s a pity that the photos did not leave the precious blue penguins coming home. Just feast your eyes.
