The Wairarapa Pt.2 - Baby Seals And Cape Palliser

After we finished hiking the Pinnacles, we headed out towards Cape Palliser. On the way we stopped at a spot where we knew we'd see some seals. Little did we know that there were babies around.

They were everywhere! We walked by this rock and nearly jumped out of our skins when the rock barked at us. This little guy was hiding behind it.
Thanks for the picture, Owen!

There was this protected pool by the sea and in it there were many baby seals frolicking. They would jump out of the water only to crash back in it.
Thanks for this picture too, Owen.

After looking at the seals, we went to the Cape Palliser Lighthouse. I'd been here before in 2010. I remembered all 252 steps.

It was as tough this time as it was last time.

But it was worth it. The lighthouse is quite impressive and the view is hard to beat.
Thanks for taking this picture, Chris!

We were treated to another great view as we drove back home. The New Zealand coast is hard to beat.

Wow, those are some steep stairs! And I'm pretty sure there's nothing cuter than those baby seals.

Gah! Baby seals! I could be convinced to accept one of those in place of an elf :)
