THE OTAGO PENINSULA
Let us play a game of 'I spy' along the windy headlands and grey coasts of the Otago Peninsula. On any given day, this is what you might find...
A flock of sheep all bleating and baah-ing.
Trotting along the spiny ridge by the sea.
A pod of seals, slinking on rocks.
Basking in the slight sun of the south.
A waddle of penguins, heading for home.
With yellow eyes blinking, and flippers a-flapping.
A rookery of albatross, soaring the seas.
Long wings outstretched, as calm as could be.
And king of them all, a great humpback whale.
Who surges and dives, with a flip of his tail.
