Finally spotted the elusive penguin!  They have several species here.  The Blue Eyed Penguins are the smallest and only active at night but we’ve seen a few in nesting boxes.  Watched 3 Yellow Eyed Penguins along the beach and then made their way to their nests.  Most of the penguins are tagged so they can track their travel patterns and monitor population which is declining. 

East Coast

Traveled along the southeast coast including visits to Oamaru, Moeraki Boulders, Dunedin and Portabello.  Cool towns and every coastline is so unique!
