Red Rocks... be wary of slashiness

Well, we did make the trek around the rugged southern coastline to Red Rocks, and there were hundreds of seals, I'm sure of it! One on every rock. I took heaps of pics but it's bed time, so I'll just share one cute one for now *g*

This was at the place I wrote about in a Sam story one time, A Kiwi Experience, with that quote about Josh devouring Sam... *sigh* this sure takes me back... waaaay back... heh...

- Sam leapt nimbly across the rocks, investigating every rock pool, holding aloft first a paua shell, then a tiny black crab and finally a small brown starfish. His hair was windswept, his cheeks bright red from the wind and the sheer enthralment of the outing, his blue eyes reflecting the untamed power of the tumultuous waters.

Moved by a sudden fire deep within, Josh skittered across the stones and grabbed Sam in a fierce embrace, holding his ribcage so tightly Sam was gasping after only a moment,

"Jo- Josh - breathe - hafta - hafta - breathe." Josh laughed out loud, releasing Sam then swinging him around and running him up the beach to the base of the hill. There he dragged Sam down and cupped his face in his hands. Sam's wide eyes were dancing with electricity, his red cheeks ice cold from the wind. Josh leaned in and kissed him. Sam was breathless and salty and delicious and there, completely alone on a wild beach at the bottom of the world, Josh devoured Sam.

Cute seal! I love seals!

I remember reading that story back in the day. And you know what's weird? It was the picture that triggered my memory!

That's really freaky!! It's been a long journey, huh ;-)

The seals were certainly smelly but very beautiful.

-Ah, I have very fond memories of that story. :-)
It was a popular one with you guys who don't live here *g*

Red Rocks is a beautiful, rugged, rocky spot still so close to town!

-*is reminded that mostly_a_cat and I definitely need to visit New Zealand at some point - as if I were in any danger of forgetting*
And yeah, I'm still waiting for you both!

-You're rather good at photography, aren't you? :-)
Thanks but - well - we have a great camera *g*

What kind of seals do you have down there?

It is okay. I did a google search on your seals. I am now a walking talking expert on your seals. Cute they are too. Apparently you have the Fur Seal or Southern Fur Seal (kokono in the Māori language).

Be warned though...

their teeth are very sharp and many New Zealanders have been bitten

Especially if you get between them and the sea. Sam & Josh were lucky.

Hee, I'm glad you did the Google search!

And we did everything we could to keep the boys from the seals. They were very keen to get up close and personal! I'll post a couple of pics showing their interest in my next post.

Well, apart from the broken arm *g* I'm glad they went, though!
We watched the wild waves and the tide approaching us yesterday and I asked the other women if they knew if we could get cut off by the tide. Hmmmm, they said, good question! I was pretty sure we were safe though. You can drive 4WD down there.
