After stopping at our hotel in Dunedin and getting settled in, well sort of, we gather with the group and headed out for a drive around the area.  Our first stop was Tomahawk Beach.  With my camera acting up, the only way to start a trip, I took what pictures I could.

We wandered the beach for a while and just started to take in all the beauty New Zealand has to offer.  I couldn’t wait to see what else was in store, that’s for sure.  _MG_0589 (2)

After wandering one direction, I went the other and ran into this not so little guy!  He was just relaxin’ on the beach when 15 college students showed up.  Sorry Mr. Sea Lion.  I took a few pictures of him, got a little too close.  These guys don’t mess around.  I was barked at and took that as a good sign to back up.  Thankfully all the pictures I wanted were taken at that point.

This was a good first look at New Zealand, but didn’t compare to a lot of what we had in store.  It was just the first of many beautiful places.

What is your favorite sight or location in New Zealand?  What do you think of their beaches?
