After we saw the Moeraki Boulders, we headed south. Since we wanted to see the countryside while we were there, Hubby turned down 'Coast Road' to see what there was to see. We saw a sign that said 'Shag Point', looked at each other, and then turned down the road. I had visions of lots of photos of shags on the rocks along the ocean. The bad news is that there were no shags. The good news is that there was a seal colony!
We saw quite a few deer farms in the South Island.
Wild keas seemed quite friendly in a parking lot--as long as they didn't think you were something to eat. They beg for food and, of course, feeding them is discouraged, but sometimes, you just can't help yourself :) and they follow you to your car.
As we waited to enter the Homer Tunnel (pictures to come) we saw one cheeky fella hopping from car to car--on the driver's side, of course--looking for food. Unfortunately, my camera batteries were flat.
As we waited by the water for our train, a male paradise duck took a drink of rainwater left in a hole.
This horse looked so happy from the train from Picton to Christchurch.
And, there were always sheep watching your every move!
