The view from our balcony
And from the beach
Mountains to the north
The sun makes an appearance
Pink clouds on the mountain
Later that day, we took the boat from Dolphin Encounter Kaikoura, and went out on the water to swim with a wild pod of dusky dolphins. It was tough for me, as I discovered a tendency towards panic attacks when immersed in the deep ocean.
Ed, one of our guides, though in his New Zealand accent there were way more /e/s in his name than I knew what to do with
Me, suited up
Dusky dolphins, about 200-300 of them

Tomorrow: The drive from Kaikoura to Wellington, with baby seals and the Red Baron.
