... as we were crossing back but we survived. The foreign looking seaweed plants anchored onto the rocks made great grab bars. By the time we got back to the main beach fog was rolling in. We made it up to the car park by 5:20 so we ended up having plenty of time. Too bad we didn’t have didn’t have more time to explore but it was fun.
On our way to Dunedin we stopped at Florence Hill one last time for a picture. The sky was starting ...
... anyway because they are falls after all. We then ate lunch nearby before continuing on our way.
Next stop was Matai Falls. The sign in the car park said 30-minute return for Matai Falls and 35-minute return for Horseshoe Falls.
