From Dunedin to Milford Sound to Christ Church. After we left Dunedin by car we traveled on the South Coast through the Catlins National Forest reserve. We stayed at a small Backpackers (that means hostel). If you actually go backpacking. that is called tramping. And a trail is called a track. Anyway we enjoyed walking along the beach and saw five seals. We walked by two of them and didn't even see them til we turned around. It was a lovely beach on Surat Bay. We walked for along time and hardly anyone around. In the evening we went to Nugget Point to see, from a high lookout some penquins (three) come out of the water. We left the next day and drove south and saw a beautiful waterfall and gorgeous beaches which we wish we had had time to stop at.

Nice Pics
Liked the pictures of you. With the sweatshirt on it doesn't look like California summer beach weather. Where is the bikini?
