Cape Foulwind

An obligatory stop when you go up the South Island West Coast is at the edge of Tauranga Bay, just outside Westport.
It's a popular spot for many reasons, liked by swimmers and surfers and also very scenic.

But, the main reason most people go here is to see these guys!

At Cape Foulwind there is a big breeding colony of fur seals.

We saw quite few seal pups, and also young seals playing in the surge. They were very cute. Linnea wanted to take one home.
