So we had a girls' weekend in the Catlins this weekend. It was lovely. No wonder everyone talks about this place! Sunday morning we woke all groggy from the rugby game and night out the night before and hit the road south for the Catlins. Only a couple hours later, we were standing at Nugget Point:

gotta love self timer shots

when they actually work

{Not sure if I've iterated enough that I want to be a lighthouse keeper some day...}

the nuggets

Then to make the most of our short time here, we headed to see some waterfalls and other sites:

Boo and the waterfall
 Following an itinerary set by a friend, we then stopped at this odds n ends shop called Curios only to find that it closes for the winter :( horse.shit.

very cool

life on the road allows for copious amounts of PB & J sandwiches
 Next? A nice hike to McLean Falls.

For sunset, we headed down to the coast again for some penguin watching.

doing hoodrat stuff with my friends
 It was a great success! They were so cute.

After such an epic sunset, we found a nice dolphin-themed hostel for the night and decided upon a sunrise watch from the southern most point of the south island of New Zealand- Slope Point. It was just us and a field full of sheep to welcome the day. 

Even more activities before heading home... Cathedral Caves. {Cathedral COVE was in the north island.}

Then it was home again, home again for another (nearly final) week of school...
