Starting off our travels with a short trip further north my new travelmates Jana and Christina and me went to farewell spit with our new ride Sushi. (He’s a Mitsubishi Galant, sometimes brown-grey and sometimes slightly pink and takes the mountains like a fighter! Ha!)
Farewell Spit at the very north of South Island is well worth the trip, it’s the biggest sand bank in New Zealand and a bird sanctuary. The beaches around are also really interesting with their rocks and birds – and seals! :) Have a look!
That’s Sushi on the left.. :)
The treck to Wharariki Beach leads over sheep grazing land.. why are they always so freaked out by people..?
Some plant from the sea.. or is it?
Wharariki Beach at low tide
oO The seals played around in a pool next to a huge rock.. and they are really curious! :)
Now what the heck is that?!
We also met other inhabitants of the area.
Farewell Spit. I’m really lucky with those, it seems.. ^^
Meet Idiot Fish. He’s too stupid to stay in the sea.. but Jana saved him!! Twice!!! xD (But the seagulls seemed really disappointed..)

Inner Beach of Farewell Spit – see the black swans? ^^
