Now that the sun was up I was able to greet some friends while on my journey!
It was suuuuuper windy!
When we hit the coast we got out and stretched our legs. It was beautiful!
After about driving for 4 hours (this was supposed to be a 3 1/2 hour drive!) we stopped at a little chicken and chips place for a snack........just a few more miles down the road we ran into this:
A SHEEP CROSSING!!! See?? Everything happens for a reason! If I didn't drive the wrong way, I wouldn't have been able to see my cow friends, if we didn't stop at the beach, if we didn't stop for our chicken snack, we woulda totally missed this!!! I was sooooo happy!!
We finally made it into the Catlins and I have a whole checklist of stuff I wanna do here. We saw a sign for Purakaunui Falls. Check.
After the falls we headed over to our B&B and were pleasantly surprised with our view...
If you're ever in the area, check out Nugget Lodge. Very affordable and nice!!
If you've seen my posts in the past, Randy always tries to jump in the water everyplace we go. It ws 50 degrees out so he was contemplating this one...
Didn't take him very long to decide.
Roaring Bay to see the penguins. Check.
We saw ONE penguin! Can you find him??
Nugget Point. Check! We did a lot today!!
I want to try and shoot Nugget Point at sunrise but it's supposed to rain tomorrow. I'm crossing my fingers that it will pass overnight. We'll just have to wait and see! g'nite!
