Punakaiki Pancakes

These are the amazing Punakaiki pancake rocks. 
we imagined they would be larger and more tasty looking, but they were small and very rock looking.
this was a medium tide, but apparently at high tide there are rocks that let water shoot out the top and make a cool whistling sound, so we will likely return at high tide someday next week.

then we walked down along this very cool stream that is at ocean level, so it goes both ways! 

joe went exploring.

we found an endangered bird, and took pictures of it. it was very exciting.


  1. We thought you were going to show us more breakfast food. But these pancakes are even more interesting. It looks like the water is very deep right from the get-go.
