The inner harbour at Riverton
Riverton campsite in the distance
Stewart Island on the horizon
Ruapuke Island over the Awarua Bay
I see no ships ! Waipapa Point lighthouse
Waipapa Point to wards Ruapuke
Colourful Seaweed at Waipaspa
Waipapa rock pools
Rock pools but no fur seals
Southern Ocean rollers
Waipapa Point light looking north
A blowhole but no NZ sea lions
A calm day but the swell is still 5 to 6 metres
Swell view !
Looking east now but the seals have left.
Not in the west either
Splash - mind that expensive camera
Waipapa lighhouse & our home from home
Romney Marsh - It can't be !!?
There are a few sheep around & it could be England
Some of Pennys friends cousins.
Petrified forest at Curio Bay
Curio Bay inlet
!70 million year old tree remains
Rocky tree stumps
Tree fellers been at work here
The grain & rings are clearly visible
A large fossilised stump
This ancient trunk was once 35 metres tall
This trunk was nearer 150 high
Curio Bay is almost the southernmost point in NZ
The seaweed tenaciously hangs on
Once a great rain forest floor
Jurassic reminder - felled 170 million years ago
This fossilised tree must be 60 or more metres
A black gull with orange beak
Funny nodding action when they walk
Three of a kind - will look them up when back home
A yellow eyed penguin appeared
Yellow eyes are very rare
The solitary Yellow eyed penguin was posing
The forest stumps
Keep 10 metres clear of the Yellow Eye
All about the penguins at Curio bay
Info on the petrified forest
View towards the Catlins
Tautuku bay from Florence Hill
Our little home arrives at Waikouaiti
Our friday night stop-over north of Dunedin
Old Git with Waikouaiti beach behind at dusk
Waikouaiti bay towards the Otago Peninsula
Day 23 Riverton to Waikouaiti
