Had a quick stop over on our way to catch the ferry to the north island at these limestone pancake formations. We've not seen anything like these before and thought they were pretty cool. Naturally formed through hard/ soft layering formations of limestone. The sea has worn away a lot of the soft layers, creating the jagged structures as well as blow holes which look impressive when the sea lashes in and is forced upwards and outwards in a water cascade. The thing with NZ is everywhere you turn there is beautiful landscape and driving in the campervan gives you the chance to pull up, take it in and have a cuppa whilst you're doing it, "rock & roll".
