    ... like. We had a nice picnic at a small beach and visited the Albatross museum and waited for our guides to take us down to a protected beach where each night, the little Blue Penguins swim home and feed their chicks. Like clockwork, they arrived about a half hour after sunset and waddled up the steep slope to their homes. That was great fun.

    We didn't make it out to see a band or DJ like we'd hoped ...

    ... we are there at the wrong time, so don’t see any penguins at all, though we do see a family of black sheep on the headland above the penguin beach!

    Nevertheless, the highlight for me is the visit to the Oasis Antique Shop. While the girls are mulling around the antiques, I find a whole section upstairs with stamp albums and sets of NZ stamps, all at 50% off. Miryam has to tear me away, as I’d probably still be there today poring over the treasures. ...

    I have one more short adventure planned to hamner hot springs. We will see what other adventures float my way but I am just going with the flow here.
