Have made several trips over the hill to Waiarapa lately. The area is famous for it’s wine but also it’s wild coast, fishing, surf, seafood, camping and seals. This white sea elephant (female) was as tucked away as she could get. She was enormous.
And the fur seals never let you get too close, theres an invisible line that I was just about to cross.
The hills and light is amazing here. We had to walk the last part because the road had washed out in the last mega-storm and then collapsed in the earthquakes. Yeah it’s been all action here in Aoteroa.
Ngawi is the fishing town. The beach is so wild they need tractors, trucks to launch the boats.
I’m guessing no one reads the signs here (-:
