Swimming with dolphins at the end of the world!

I really enjoyed my time in Australia but I was very excited to go to New Zealand. i was getting tired of the City/beach/activity/party that was the mainstay of Australia's east coast. New Zealand was the last stop in my trip and represented literally the end of the world for me. Even from Australia, it was a 3.5 hours flight! I decided to visit only the South Island, since I only had 18 days there. The south Island's population is about 1 million, resulting in ...

... a good idea to walk down a thousand steps to the rocky and pebble beach to get a closer look. We followed and though it was pretty dangerous walking over the rocks ( bit like walking over to worms head tony ! Lol ) we came across some rocks with quite a few seals on them sunbathing. They are so well camouflaged when they are drying out we saw a couple and then as we were looking started seeing more and more. We kept walking round ...

... impressive, their tales fluking. Then after about 40 mins we spotted another. The boat doesn't use echo sounder, just a listening device, as radar etc cause confusion to the whales.

Had a second night at Peketa beach, only time we have stayed at a site twice, lovely surf tonight, but no more ...

... dangerous sea to find refuge, 4 kilometres from predators, up a rocky stream, to a beautiful freshwater pool that is fed by a tremendous waterfall in a lush green forest. As we make our way up we see a lone seal pup, under a large rock, playing in the water. We sit. It sees us and retreats briefly, but is driven by its curiosity. It eventually succumbs and begins to climb the rock that Elizabeth has sat upon, to come and smell her ...

... that once again poor Sid was blown all over the road and even had small rocks thrown at him from the steep sided slopes. You could see snow-capped mountains all around. Next comes Castle Hill with some very weird weathered limestone rock formations. This is followed by a fantastic limestone cave with a stream running through it. The cave is 360 metres long formed when the stream ran along a fissure in the limestone. The journey through the cave takes one hour. We ...
