And here it is, Monro Beach. It happens very suddenly. One second you’re in rainforest and then suddenly you’re on the low dunes. The quick pace along the gravel track instantly slows as you trudge through the soft sand. My shoes come off quite quickly.

If you are going to look for these magnificent flightless birds, be sure to bring your patience. We sat quietly and waited for 2 hours before we noticed in the distance the familiar waddle and grace of a Fiordland Crested Penguin moving from sea to bush. We moved quickly and quietly and were able to get a few shots, while keeping well clear of the penguin as per the guideline provided by the Department of Conservation. Sadly, this was the best shot I could get from the distance, as it was taken back in 2010, before I upgraded my camera.

This swamp is quite charming, given the plants and reflective waters. 蛮漂亮的沼泽地,充满生命力的植物,有倒影的神秘黑湖。

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.
