The beach has the caves you can walk inot a low tide. You can just see them in the photo.

The Kaikoura shot is from the lookout above the seal beach.

I have visited that Westport buiidng many times over the last six years.

Been to the area around Tekapo many times.

Never met the man but his legacy lives on.
