Yesterday we went to Wharariki Beach again with friends from Canada. I am always impressed with this beach – the relaxing walk across the farmland to reach the beach and the dramatic scenery when we get there… and of course the seals. We counted no fewer than 12 seal pups and several adults. The seals seem quite unafraid of humans and as long as people continue to respect them, there is no reason why this should not continue. I attach a photo Trish took of a couple of seal pups while we are visiting.
