Just to the North of Kaikoura on the East coast of New Zealand’s South Island (that is a lot of compass points in one sentence!) lies Ohau Point.
Ohau Point is just off the main highway and is home to a large colony of New Zealand fur seals. This may not sound spectacular but there were so many seal pups to see! I cannot tell you how cute they are so you will just have to see for yourselves below.
There is a pool just upstream from the coast where the pups go to play and practice swimming – sadly the walk was closed due to aggressive males (if only they would close down British cities on a Friday night for such reasons!) but what was open to view was a joy to behold!
