Artist's Description

Our amazing adventure to Kaka Point.
The seaweed danced like a magic carpet on the waves as we wandered slowly along the deserted beach. Variable Oystercatchers made themselves invisible amongst the black of the seaweed that lay scattered along the shoreline. A few lively insect-eating Pipit birds with their rapid repeated to-and-fro movements and constant bobbing action seemed to us in time with the lapping of the waves. A few Pied Stilts stood like daddy long legs against the scattered rocks, while the masked plover introduced himself with a loud call as he flew off over the cliff top.
For a moment my hubby (Keith) said he felt like Tom Hanks in “Cast Away”, nothing but the sound of the breakers pounding the rocks and creating an endless swirl of foam, the gulls shrieking overhead, the crackle of loose stones beneath our rubber soled boots, the untouched bush line reaching up into the sky, occasionally punctuated by a gigantic chalkboard of sheer rock just crying out to the wind for more eternal art work.
We crouched, walked, climbed, and scrambled as unobtrusively as possible stalking numerous native birds, some willing to pose for a photograph while others soared high above us till they were out of sight.
Much to our delight a single Yellow Eyed Penguin was on the deserted little bay. I was delighted to meet this rare and endangered fellow for for the first time. His facial expression looked grumpy in this photograph, but I guess it is difficult to smile with a beak like that…..
