27th July 2014 – Wellington, New Zealand
The kiwi was a recluse on a vacationAnd the sea gulls already had their moment.The penguins never bothered to say hi,So I had to reluctantly seal my intent.
Yeoni, my CS host, felt like taking a good, long drive today. And since it was a Sunday, we did take a good, long drive. We drove all the way from Wellington, to Cape Palliser, which has a beautiful light house overlooking a cliff and some beautiful black, sand beaches.What we didn’t prepare for, was the wildlife. On the way, there was a notice to drive slowly for the penguins. Penguins! I have never come across one in real life!
A false alarm, as it turned out. There were no penguins anywhere on the scenic drive. But there were seals. Plenty of them. They stood on the side of the road, and almost smiled when I took pictures of them..
The smile sealed it for the day.
