The Land of the Long White Cloud - Otago Peninsula

 It is almost time to leave the beautiful South Island of New Zealand but there is just time to squeeze in one final expedition.

This is Sand Fly Bay.
 What might live here?
What for example is this strange brown lump in the white sands?

It is a sub-adult male New Zealand sealion

And a little further along the beach are some fur seals, including this one hauled out among the washed up wood.

Shark? No sealion flipper!

Sealions like to surf

Then they emerge from the surf

Then they turn around and go in again
