This swamp is quite charming, given the plants and reflective waters.

First visit to a beach in New Zealand. Didn't find any penguins here, but plenty of sandflies.

Kahikatea Swamp Forest Walk Along Ship Creek in New Zealand

The west coast of the South Island of New Zealand is nothing short of spectacular. Around every turn there seems to be a rare and hidden treasure. Along Ship Creek we found the ancient Kahikatea Swamp Forest. It is considered to be New Zealand’s best example of a swamp forest. I thinks it’s beautiful, even without a bright sunny day.
