Friends forever on a Ferry- f*ck it ford fusion

A travel blog entry by graceschulz on Dec 03, 2014

... 10:30ish. As we had arrived so early we were able to visit the seal colony. I didn't quite know what to expect but we literally pulled up in a car park along the beach area and as you'd expect there were some rocks and pebbles but there were also just a load of seals chilling. One seal was even relaxing in the sun in the car park. It was crazy. We were warned not to get too close as they can be viscous and bite you leaving you with gangrene ...

Whale Watch

... reason there is such diverse marine life here is due to the vast continental shelf which is so close to the main land.
The ocean plummets to vast depths and this makes the abundance of food for the whales great. It is their feeding ground not a mating ground.
off to North Island tomorrow so hopefully see some dolphins in the Cook Strait
