More are emerging from the cliff face as erosion happens. The ones which have been partially eroded on the surface reveal veins of another rock type making them look like tortoise shells and others have broken up along these veins.

Whilst in Moeraki we visited the lighthouse wildlife viewing point where we saw a lonely penguin and a few seals staying safely away from the fiercely breaking waves.

After this it started raining and carried on most of the day so we headed south to a town called Dunedin (dun-ee-den) where the Scots landed.

Apparently Dunedin comes from it's original name little Edinburgh. We visited some art galleries, the shops, cafes and the information site here before finding a campsite for the night. We shall probably stay here a few nights before heading further south.
