Whales and Dolphins / Wale und Delfine

... einem Wasserfall wo sich ganz viele Babyrobben aufhalten und aufwachsen. Sie tollen den ganzen Tag herum uns spielen im Wasser. Einige liegen ganz faul auf den von der Sonne angewärmten Steinen herum und andere sind so neugierig, dass sie sich bis auf wenige Zentimeter an die genauso neugieren Besucher heran trauten. Wir hätten den ganzen Tag dort verbringen können. Es wurde aber langsam dunkel und wir wollten uns noch in der Stadt ...

Whale watching!

Drove up from christchurch to Kaikora seeing some classic beautiful NZ scenery on the way with huge mountains in the distance, the greenest rolling fields and the powerful pacific ocean crashing onto black beaches littered with driftwood and fringed by steep cliffs. Kaikora is a marine wildlife paradise all because of the converging of two ocean currents causing upwelling of nutrients and so huge plankton productivity which then attracts everything else here. It ...

... a cove where the tide was washing in and out like a wave machine. Once we had arrived in Kaikoura we took the 4hour peninsular walk.

Along the rest of the walk we spotted more seals, loads of birds (confirmed with Amy that ...

... at five yesterday. I hadn't slept very well and felt really cold. I was rather looking forward to a nap in the afternoon than to getting in the cold water chasing after dolphins. But that's just gloomy "nobody-in-their-right-minds-would-get- up-this-early" thinking. It was still pitch black when I was walking to the other side of town. It's odd how I never once feel unsafe in NZ, whereas I'd never walk around in Brussels (or some parts of Antwerp) at this time of ...

From Picton to Kaikoura

... the trains so I guess you get what you pay for! I see what people mean about the south island now though, it does seem more scenic with hills and mountains everywhere. We took the coastal roads so got some cool sea views including loads of seals sunning themselves on the rocks. I didn't spot them at first because they blended in but once I saw one I saw lots! The whole of Kaikoura has the best views, including a couple of snow capped ...
