From Christchurch to Dunedin

My husband wanted to go and I offered myself up to accompany him. We have been out a few times this year. We prefer to collect memories instead of things ;)

Shag Point is at an hour before Dunedin and home to a big fur seal colony.

  4. Sights to remember and cherish: the rocks, the seals, the pyramids, the night sky. I totally agree with you about collecting memories.

  5. We don't get down your way often but I remember seeing the sign for Shag Point and being surprised by all the seals!
