From: Neil

Waving from New Zealand

We saw the bottom half of lots of hills, had some stiff southerlies as we rode, er, south and saw lots of farming country with sheep and cows. There were days with a bit of sunshine. We spent one such day at Curio Bay. Yellow eyed Penguins, Hector's Dolphins and New Zealand Fur Seals. Camping in amongst the flax. There was nowhere to sit for dinner so we sat at the tables for the shop overlooking the bay. We watched, enchanted, as the fur seal came up the steps and ramp to the grassed area, although watchful that he wanted to share our meal. We should be so lucky! As he sauntered off further into the camping area, Neil followed. Five minutes later he was back saying "You should go and have a look, but you wont be happy". He was right.
