      Lovely walk by the sea

      A travel blog entry by emmafox17 on Apr 08, 2015

      ... Lukas. We just chilled there for a while playing games and skimming stones before going for a 2 hour stroll along the seafront. This was really awesome, I find the water so calming and peaceful and I had fun making a fool of myself - I decided to dip my toes in the water except kind of misjudged how high the wave coming towards me was and soaked my jeans up to ...

      ... the snow is melting in the mountains in spring. The first clue Ben got that there were any animals there were some tracks in the dirt. We later saw some sheep roaming around freely by the bank. Perhaps they had escaped. Our final stop before getting back to camp was next to a field of deer by the road. These large ruminants were staring at us inquisitively whist taking breaks from feeding. Their colour was gorgeous and there were hundreds ...

      ... hours earlier was contemplating staying in the boat to simply watch the porpoises of death devour my loved ones. On our way back to shore (now 90% of the boat was sick) we watched the pod of at least 200 Dusky dolphins jump and flip and surf the waves. It was amazing. And guess what? No sharks!... at least none that I saw.

      We drove up to Picton that evening to catch the ferry to Wellington the next day. I have never slept so soundly; conquering fears takes a lot out of a ...

      ... sea with amazing undersea technology .... No the captain kills the engine then goes to the side with what looks like a stick and listens for the clicks the whale makes. Depending on what he hears he knows whether the whale is rising or descending or basically if a whale is in the vicinity.

      ... both say no as we don't want to leave the whales! The boat tour see where we are and also make their way over to the same spot, it's only when the boat pulls up that you realise exactly how big these whales are! When the whales are ready to start feeding again they dive back down and lift their tails out of the water. Once out of sight we spotted a pod of over 100 dusky dolphins, they are so playful and doing heaps of acrobatics! So funny to watch, they jump so high out of ...
