Whangarei Falls & Tutukaka Area

The weather seems to be warming up!  Yay!  I’m not sure if it’s because I’m further up north or if spring is just around the corner… regardless – I’m LOVING it!  A couple of friends of mine were in the area and after an epic night of scrabble, we decided to check out ‘Tutukaka’ (a name that gets more and more enjoyable to say after a few glasses of wine)!  I was taking the dogs out for a walk the following day and we stumbled upon a rather odd looking lump on the sand.  Jack, being the uber friendly retriever that he is, decided to check it out.  GAH!  It moved and turned out to be a giant seal!  While I’m positive Jack would have lovingly greeted the seal, by the sound of the seal’s sudden throaty bellowing, I yelled at Jack to get the hell away from it!  I’m pretty sure those teeth gave the seal the advantage.  It was, however, amazing to see this beautiful mammal so close!
