Then I took the “Southern Scenic Drive” to make my way to the Catlins.
First stop: Tunnels Beach, a secluded beach accessible by a man-made tunnel which was build about 150 years ago by a man who wanted to have a private beach and his daughters to be able to go for a swim unseen by others.
Second stop, or rather detour: Nugget Point, which has a nice walkway that leads to the lighthouse. From the walking path I was able to watch some fur seals and dolphins in the bay nearby.
Third stop: Purakaunui Waterfalls – oooww, my first “slow water” pictures, even though my tripod didn’t arrive before I left Zurich, a handrail did take its place and fortunately it was “dark” enough without a filter to do the “long” exposure to smooth-over the water. So, what do you think?
