South Island Road Trip * day eight * Arrowtown to The Catlins (part two)

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

The Nugget Point Light House was very high on my list of all time favorite short walks. A narrow ridge winds out to the light house, exposing an unbelievably rugged coast line with astonishing views in every direction. Check out some of these arial shots to get a better perspective on the remarkable beauty of this place. Right around the corner at Roaring Bay we saw a yellow-eyed penguin coming up to nest. It is considered one of the worlds rarest penguin species with an estimated population of 4000.

After Nugget Point and Roaring Bay we went to Surats Bay for an unsuccessful Sea Lions hunt. The boys had a seaweed fight with the enormous strings of bull kelp. It was a nice walk on a beautiful beach... great way to wrap up the day. Back home for a big pasta dinner and toasted marshmallows by they fire.
