At the bottom of the south island……almost

Porpoise Bay would have to be one of my most favorite places on the planet…. isolated, windswept, wild and incredibly beautiful.

Just around the corner from Porpoise Bay is Curio Bay …..families of yellow eyed penguins(endangered) make their home here. We were lucky enough to see them but unfortunately too dark to take pictures.The  bay itself is a remnant of  petrified forest as well as the home to colonies of bull kelp.

And sheep around the corner….

A truly beautiful place.
