Jul 12, 2013 - The Wee Island

The Wee Island I continued my drive down the east coast, starting with the Morekai Boulders, huge round stones that seem like overgrown cannon balls sunk into the sand. Then onto Dunedin, a beautiful town that looks a lot like Sausalito, with all the houses perched on the hillside all around the town, at the edge of the harbor. I decided it was important to see the Albatross Conservatory while I was there, which basically cost me a lot of money and about a three hour chunk of my day. I won’t be paying to see any more wildlife. They were...

Aug 29, 2007 - From fiordland to the Catlins (West to East)

The next day was wet and cloudy.We travelled straight across the south island to Gore (where we bought our saddles) then to Balclutha and down to a bay called Surat Bay where there are supposed to be sea lions about..... and sure enough as we walked along the beach(in the rain) we almost tripped over a sealion asleep on the beach. Further along there was another one but this was more lively and trundled past us very close... in fact so close he stopped and threatened us because he felt trapped.He had gone land side of us and could not get...
