After our evening of cockles, we had another day of driving and beauty. We started at the northern coast of the South Island, but we headed to the west coast. Once again, I have little to report beyond a detail or two and some photos.
The west coast is thinly populated. Its beauty is stark and even lonely. We drove slowly down the highway, stopping at different places that seemed interesting.
We came to a seal colony.
We saw some exotic coastlines.
We came to the famous Pancake Rocks. I was intrigued to learn that geologists are still unsure about how they formed.
While at the beach, the kids played like, well, kids.
While we traveled, it was nice to find directions.
