I've been told it looks awesome after a heavy rain.
Kate noticed this shag chillin' like a villain in the water.
Today, we organized a group outing to check out Tunnel Beach. It's one of the local DOC walks around Dunedin. To get there, we walked to the Octagon, hopped on a bus and took a ride across the peninsula. The driver dropped us off and said to walk 1 1/2 miles and make a left. Sounded good to us!
The walk to get there was a little steep, but there were great views on the way to the water.
I loved exploring the beach!
In case photos aren't enough, how about a video?
And, yes, there is a manmade tunnel, too.
Notice that the edge of the water is a little ways back...
And, yes, there is more cool stuff to see at the bottom!
Well, I got a little caught up in taking pictures and failed to process that this wave was coming right for me...
I turned quick on the rock that I was standing on so that I could outrun the wave, but proceeded to slip and fall flat on my rump. I still managed to recover in time to get a snapshot of the one that got me.
Unfortunately, Mother Nature had enough of letting us enjoy the sunshine, so we headed back to Abbey College. I definitely would recommend this trip to those in Dunedin. Even the scenery above the beach was great!
By far, the best $6 (for the bus) that I've spent since I've been here!
