This was just some more of the wonderful scenery with the blue Tasman Sea. I loved the rocks everywhere.
More beautiful fall colors!!
Beautiful pristine beaches! A funny story happened on our way to our motel in Nelson. We have been using a GPS (dear husband purchased a used chip for our Garmin before leaving home). She has been a life saver for the most part but in Nelson she led us to a dirt road that led to nowhere!!! Seems Warren had not put in the address completely correctly!! We got to see lots of scenery though.
I really liked the rocks a lot!!
Here are two Shags (Cormorants) with a Great Cormorant joining them.
This is a Black Backed Gull which we saw everywhere along with the Red Billed Gulls.
There were many New Zealand Fur Seals on an outcropping of rocks. I think head on they look like little old men!
This is a Variable Oystercatcher. Some are black and white but there were a bunch that were pure black as well.
This was a whole beach full of South Island Oystercatchers which look a lot like the ones from home!! There were a few of the solid black ones in here as well.
