Nov. 29 – Akaroa Harbor cruise
The nature cruise of Akroa Harbor was great. We saw all kinds of birds, a seal and Hectors dolphins. They were in a playful mood and various pods of them decided to visit us. Believe me when I say it is much easier to get a picture of water than it is to get a picture of a dolphin. We all kept trying and mostly ended up with water and shadows of dolphins. I did manage to get one fairly decent shot. These dolphins are the smallest in the world and have a rounded top fin instead of an angular fin. The weather turned during our two hour trip, so we had to head back to port a little early. For the most part the weather was great, though!
