Cruisin'. Not Quite the Riviera, But, Um, Close?


This weekend, I joined fellow Abbey College residents for an Otago Harbour wildlife cruise.  The day started off decent (it wasn't raining, just gray), but started to turn while we were on the boat.



We still saw some neat things.  Some birds came out of the water from nowhere.  At first, someone thought they were penguins, but they were actually shag.  


There were sea lions, too.


Once we reached the lighthouse, the water started getting VERY rough!

So, we turned around and headed back.


Next time, we're hoping to see an orca or some Hector's dolphins.
