        Good morning Kaikoura! As we were peacefully getting ready this morning the air raid horn went off.. Lynne came running out the shower in her towel shouting "tsunami, tsunami!" It took us a few minutes to be able to move for laughing. She checked out the window and all was well. Panic over. The first stop today was Ohau to see some seals which live at a waterfall. We thought it should be easy to find being as there's very few roads to choose from here, ...

        ... As I mentioned, Kaikoura is a small coastal town. There is one Main Street with shops and restaurants and plenty of beached to go for a walk. However, given the weather, we decided to drive to Ohau Point Lookout, home to New Zealand Fur Seal colonies. The seals are unique to NZ and know to the Maoris as 'Kekeno'.

One guy in a grey wetsuit cut an awkward figure as he picked his way gingerly across the painful stones towards the water's edge. If you picture C3PO with a surfboard under his left arm, you'll have a good idea of what he looked ...

        ... part of the local economy. These trees are shipped to China where the trees are either turned into pulp or furniture and often shipped back to NZ. In the US the Monterey Pine is a native to California and would reach its full height in about 40 years. Here in NZ it is in about 25 years. At this point we had to change our plans.Logistics had cut our South Island stay by several days. Two to three days of heavy rain were forecast, especially in the mountains and west coast. ...

        ... all this, without a single "Aehhhmm" or "Oehhhh" while perfectly driving the big bus over the curvy roads at a set speed of 94 km/h (set by the cruise control) and shifting through the manual 7 speed electronic gear box. - we could see all this from our first row seats.
