More snaps

Continuing from my previous post with a few snaps of the Cape Foulwind (near Westport) area.
We rented a great house (click here), included was a curious Weka.  Sometimes the baby visited as well.

Omau is a tiny settlement ~1km from Cape Foulwind and perched on the clip tops.  It took me a couple of walks to discover the track down to the beach.  The beach is quite small and rocky and almost disappears at full tide.

At Tauranga Bay (just a bit down the coast) is a fur seal colony.  It is well known for being a great surfing beach (well according to the various signs), also The Bay House Cafe this looked like an interesting cafe - unfortunately we didn't get to dine there.
