... Loads of these dinosaur egg like boulders have broken open and look as if they have hatched, or just like convenient natural bath tubs if it was warm enough. This is actually where the largest NZ fossil was discovered (that we saw at the Otago museum) – inside a massive egg like boulder, the dinosaur fossil was found - pretty neat.
We had to make a stop off at the Moeraki Boulders next which was only just round the coast and is one of the big touristy ...

This was the one day I had for gliding in NZ, so was hoping for good weather.
The day dawned and the sky was clear and blue, except to the west where small cu were popping over the mountains. The weather briefing was at 10am and we were told that the front had gone through much quicker than expected and was already many miles north.
