Curio Bay in the Catlins

We had arranged our arrival at Curio Bay to view the penguins arriving home for the night. They come home after a busy day fishing around dusk.

After a couple of hours and freezing temperatures we decided to give the game away.  Luckily we had managed to view the penguins on an earlier visit in 2012.

IMG_0958Time to give up we thought, what a shame, we were frozen to the bone.

We headed off to the NZMCA property at Niagara Falls for the night after a meal of freshly caught blue cod and chips.
