There is an oceanside parking lot in New Plymouth called 'Pig out point' (well, by the locals, anyway) that is, of course, a convenient place to eat your fast food after you've gone through the drive-thru window.
The gulls are very aware of this place and perch expectantly on the
hood bonnet of your car. They have no shame.
We got a spectacular view of the windsurfers as we dined al fresco.
