Canterbury

The Southern Scenic Route arbitrarily ends in Dunedin.  We, however, continued up along the west coast of the South Island. 

 

The rubber tire steam engine club was out in force. 

 

Moeraki Boulders

 

 

 

Omaru

 

Another place to see blue penguins coming home for the evening.  (We watched them on the Otago Peninsula as well.) 


 

Kaikoura

 

There is a very deep ocean trench that emerges right around Kaikoura.  This means that the cold currents from the deep mingle with the warmer currents of the shallows, making this an ideal feeding ground for whales, seals and dolphins. 

 

On the search for seals
 

 


 

 

Tasman Bay

We skirted Picton, from whence the North Island ferry runs, and drove on in the direction of the Abel Tasman National Park.  We stayed in Marahou.

 

 

 


 

From the Abel Tasmin National Park, we were North Island bound.
