Early morning we loaded up on rolls and baked good from Potpurri, an amazing veggie cafe, and strapped ourselves in for the long drive from Dunedin to Lake Tekapo.
On the way, we could resit taking a detour to follow a sign that simply read ‘Boulders’. We were very glad we did as it led us to the Moeraki Boulders at Koekohe Beach. As far as natural wonders go, the boulders are pretty specky. They are almost perfectly round and look a little like small planets floating in the water and beached on the shore.
