Summer Holidays 2017: Moeraki Boulders

A beautiful sunrise was greeting us in the morning, enough to make us jump into the car and go back South to have a closer look at the magic boulder we missed the day before.
But then, the winds got stronger.
We were lucky to be shaded from the wild weather by the steep coastline.
Another surprise: We were all alone at the beach.
The only ones crazy enough to go there in a storm at high tide.
Closer look at the insides of a boulder.
These boulders are grey-colored septarian concretions, which have been exhumed from the mudstone enclosing them and concentrated on the beach by coastal erosion.
On a calm day, these funny marbles would be stood on, sat on and danced on. What people do for fotos.
Like this.
Bye-bye! See you next time (suneshine pls)
