This is a long overdue post about our second trip to The Catlins, which was seems like ages ago now, with all that we’ve been through and done. In reality, though, it was “only” two and half months ago – my how time flies when you’re having fun!
This trip to The Catlins was just a day trip and again in typical New Zealand weather – some sun, some clouds, some rain, some wind. Our first stop was a pleasant little waterfall called Purakaunui Falls. The hardest part was driving on the various backroads to get to it; it was only a short walk from the car park. Again, another pleasant gem of a waterfall in New Zealand! All of the rain here does provide some benefits!
A little further down the road, we made our way over to Jacks Bay, Jacks Blowhole and Penguin Bay. Now, if you’ve had the dark pleasure of watching the recent/new movie Two Little Boys, then you’ll recognize Jacks Blowhole. And, if you haven’t seen the movie and you’d like to see a different side of southern New Zealand and Invercargill that I can’t (and won’t) show you, then I’d encourage you to get out and see it if you have the opportunity. (Or, just try to download it from Netflix or iTunes.)
And, finally, I tried to do some “artsy” photography while at Jacks Bay, enjoying the sand and water drainage patterns (and, a sheep’s mandible in the sand).
