courthouse on blyth

 One last post about our trip down south....
This is the place we stayed in Central Otago.  We stayed in Clyde for almost a week.  Clyde is an old gold mining town and it had lots of old historic buildings.  The house where we stayed was the former the courthouse.
The building was beautiful and had lots of character. 
The kids loved playing in the large fenced in area and quickly discovered ripe white nectarines growing on the vines.  
The building has been beautifully restored.  The kitchen counter is right where the old judge's table sat.
The old jail cel has been turned into the bathroom, you can see it in the far corner.
