dune

Hello from Farewell Spit, the northwest corner of the South Island. 
It's a glorious corner of the world. 
Verdant valleys and sheep. 
And huge sand dunes. 
Wharariki Beach is actually on the West Coast, though it's six hours drive from where I stayed before. 
We were looking for seal pups but only saw one. 
Hard to complain when it looks like this. 
Low tide near Farewell Spit. 
Then I came back and took a bush bath near a stream. Not sure where the hot water comes from, but it felt great.
