Baby Fur Seals at Ohau and Kaikoura

It was a long drive from Picton to Christchurch, with rain for the last half. We stopped to see the baby fur seals in the waterfall of the Ohau Stream Walk and on the shore of Ohau Point. Everyone's been recommending this to us, and it was definitely worth checking out. After an easy 7-minute walk up to a waterfall, we enjoyed seeing a bunch of baby fur seals playing and leaping around in the pool. They jumped out of the water like dolphins and stuck their heads under the waterfall. Very cute!

We also got close to a baby fur seal with huge brown eyes on the peninsula outside of Kaikoura. Adult seals were totally crashed nearby, enjoying a snooze despite the rain. It was a nice wildlife end to the trip.

It had recently snowed on the Southern Alps. Love these!
