NZ Journal Day 12 (11/20/16) – PART ONE: We spent both the morning and evening of today exploring the wild coastline of Carter’s Beach, just south of Westport. In the morning we surprised some fur seals, and in the evening we were eluded by the Little Blue Penguins, both who call Carter’s Beach home.
We stumbled upon this handsome devil while walking the coastline. An important rule to note when encountering fur seals is not to get between them and the sea. We failed here and moments after taking this photo he charged for the safety of the ocean, sending us scampering across the rocks and out of his way.
