But in MY blog I'll answer the question.
Baby seals frolicking in a waterfall! I can't think of much sweeter than that. Especially when you're surrounded by 100's of them at once darting and diving, lounging and laying!
The start of road trip number 2. This time we're doing a brief circuit of the north of the South Island and we get of go with Lindsay and Chucky!
Like a big child friendly playground where kids can socialize and build physical skills, only without any adult supervision. Can you fathom human children doing the same? Mother's are out hunting at sea and eating as much as they can so that they can produce milk for the rapidly growing
I'm sure if we were in Canada, there would be paved paths throughout with railings so that you couldn't get too close. And they would probably make the waterfall and river into a more sanitary pool for the seals. And definitely change the rocks as they're too dangerous for seals to be climbing on...
But it was incredible to be a part of their play and have them not really pay you any attention at all. Well, except for the occasional stare with their huge liquid chocolate eyes...
We want to do some hiking and kayaking around this area and hopefully get to play with some more seals!!!
