We visit Kaikoura

 We camped by a beach, look at this sunset.
 We drove past some huge salt pans, where sea water is evaporated and the salt is harvested. These salt hills were huge.
 Even though it is the middle of summer in New Zealand, we can still see snow on some of the mountains.
This is us visiting a waterfall and a pool. In the middle of summer there weren't any seal pups, but in the winter months there are often more than a hundred seal pups swimming here. They leave their mothers for a few days at a time, and climb up a creek to this pond where they play and socialise with other seal pups, then head back to feed with their mothers.
