Nap time

Saturday, February 4th, 2012

  • Highway One, on the east coast of New Zealand’s South Island, threads it’s way along the rugged coastline with little between the road and the crashing waves. Driving that winding road today I made frequent stops to take in the scenery, enjoy some freshly cooked crayfish, and walk along the rocky beaches where I encountered several seals just relaxing in the afternoon summer sun.

    Untroubled by my presence, this seal literally opened one eye to look at me before sliding back into what looks like a perfectly wonderful afternoon nap.
