Nelson and Abel Tasman National Park

29 May

We stayed at a lovely place in Marahau, called The Barn. It was also only a few minutes from the coast where we were going to start our adventure the next morning, brilliant.

National Park Abel Tasman was very beautiful! We rented a kayak as set off from Marahau. We kayaked around the Fisherman Island and Adele Island. The weather was surprisingly warm and summer-like even thought winter season has started over here. We saw lots of bird life, but also Seals! I have never been that close to seals in the wild before. They are definitely some very cool animals, just chilling on land, sunbathing, and swimming around making their skin shine in the sun. Most of all I found them adorable!

We had a lovely lunch at Akersten Bay, one of the many scenic beaches at Abel Tasman. It was so beautiful and quiet, definitely one of the best picnics I have ever had.
