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.

From the picnic area at Shag Point you look down at the rock formations were many seals were

  1. Hi Marja - sounds like a wonderful idea ... and accompanying your husband even better ... great memories are made like this - and lots of potential blog posts?! Cheers Hilary

  2. Een mooie tocht, prachtige foto's!

  3. Stunning shots! These views of places you visited with your husband are worthy of any grand box of memory jewels.

  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!

  6. Hoi Marja! It's been a while since I saw your blog. New Zealand is so beautiful! Groetjes van Miss Footloose from lifeintheexpatlane
