Sept 27th- 30th
We had spectacular views of Queen Charlotte Sounds as we arrived into Picton on the South Island. We stopped at a viewing area before making our way to our chosen campsite 17km away at Momorangi Bay. It was such an amazing spot, with little boys fishing out on the lake, us feeding the ducks, and just $18 for the night.
Left the beautiful scenery of Picton and drove 150km to Kaikoura, the roads were winding between rocks and the sea, it did feel like a long journey but still gorgeous views the whole way. We spotted seals along the coast so after pitching the tent at ' Kaikoura Peketa Beach Holiday Park' we went back to Ohau Point and stream to see lots of seals, it was lovely and so great to see them in their natural habitat. The seals migrate to the stream with their pups as it is a safe area to bring up the pups, until they are old enough to go back to the sea.
