I’m back on a Stray bus & clearly buzzing from my skydive! My new travel companions seem lovely & friendly. We are driving toward Westport on the West Coast of the South Island overlooking the Tasman Sea. We stopped off at Cape Foulwind* & did the short 30 minute walk along the coast. Very picturesque but actually it was smelling rather disgusting by the seal colony. I didn’t last long admiring the seals, I couldn’t endure the stench! Stinky!
I have since spoke to other friends who visited Cape Foulwind & they thought it didn’t smell too bad – Maybe it varies day to day? Maybe I caught the seals on a bad day? Maybe they had a massive night the night before & hadn’t pulled themselves together yet?? Either way, it is a pleasant stop when driving along the coastline & a nice chance to stretch your legs – you can even treat yourself to an ice cream at the car park!
