The Edge of the World

Well, actually the Southern edge of NZ

Driving along the southern coast of the South Island of New Zealand, we encountered some sheep and helped herd them with our car!

We stopped in the town that is the farthest south on the South Island, Bluff, for some classic pictures.

Then we drove along a dirt road, for quite some time, to get to the 'real' southern most point of the South Island...

We also drove up to a lookout (as opposed to hiking an hour up...we've gotten lazy with a car!) and got to watch a storm come in :)

The next day, we drove through The Catlins, which had several pretty waterfalls. One claimed to be the "most photographed"...I wonder how many more pictures are taken when one is labeled as the "most photographed...

There was also a cool lighthouse we stopped at called Nugget Point (named after the rocks sticking up out of the water).

We made some friends, borrowed some binoculars, and even saw some birds and seals below!
