day 10 and we’re in invercargill before hitting the road to dunedin.
we’ve been very lucky with the weather, but today is a bit cold and dreary.
on the way to dunedin we took the southern-most route along the coast. our first stop was at curio bay
next stop was tautuku. the bark on this tree reminded me of a topographical map.
the tree on the right is a lancewood – stick like as a juvenile (10 to 15 years) with pointy teeth on its long skinny leaves, it then morphs into a traditional broadleaf. one of the theories is that the tree developed it’s defenses to protect it from the now extinct moa.
how many places on the planet can you stand alone on a beach like this?
