On the coastal highway north of Dunedin the road sign to ‘Shag Point’ peaked our interest and we just had to check out where this was going 🙂 It turned out to be quite a normal little lookout with lots of fur seals and seagulls, but we would still like to know how that place got it’s name? And how many stupid tourists drive to that place just because of that road sign?
A short trip further north is Moeraki Beach, where a dozen huge round boulders are strewn around the beach like giant marbles. The perfect setting for some (stupid) pictures and some amazing landscape shots.
The last pit stop of the day was at High Country Salmon, one of the world’s highest salmon farms. Since Bea had some problems to carry a whole fish back to our car, we stocked up on salmon sushi, hot smoked salmon (our favourite) and cold smoked salmon instead 🙂
