... him to the seal in the road and the seal just stopped bang in the middle of the road in front of the car to give him a stare. It was so funny as they definitely rule this part of town. He crossed over the road as there is a little vegetation area in which the pups hang out in. We left the pups to their own mischievous actions and headed to see a few of the adult seals chilling out on the rocks. Some were sleeping whilst others rolled on their backs but you could tell they were ...

Kaikoura is a beautiful coastal town 2 hours north of Christchurch. The road to Kaikoura hugs the coast and cuts through the mountains.

Doesn't get much better! ...

I have spent 28 blissfully ignorant years not knowing the horror that lurks beneath, the terror of the deep, the nightmare in the deep blue. A few days before Josh and I were to meet up with my parents again in Kaikoura, we watched JAWS. This was my very first viewing of the terrifying documentary of a terrible summer in Massachusetts back in the 1970's. Why? Why, did they keep going to the beach?!
