a day on the Peninsula

This past weekend we have had VIP guests visiting – my parents have been over from Australia. It was also Mia’s 8th birthday, so we had a lot of together-time, meals, and adventures. Our biggest adventure was a day spent taking a Peninsula Tour with Monarch Wildlife Cruises – up and over the Otago Peninsula, over to the Royal Albatross Centre, on to the Monarch to cruise around the Taiaroa headland, then for a wander around Penguin Place to view the Yellow Eyed Penguins. It’s an amazing day out – such a great experience, and you see such many amazing and unique wildlife, I highly recommend it! Such a great way to appreciate the wonder that is around us. As you can see it was rather a gray and hazy day, but often that is the best light for Dunedin, showing off all it’s rugged beauty.
