About 10 hours traveling time up the east coast of the South Island from where i live ,is the township of Kaikoura, a tourist mecca for whale watching ,however whenever i pass through there i'm only interested in rocks ...and across the road ,wildflowers !!  8)

Cheers Dave.

Those rocks seems a bit difficult to bring home in one piece!

Very special indeed - and the flowers too.

Dave- those rocks are really beautiful! And the flowers just as impressive :) As interesting as whales are, I'd have difficulty keeping my eyes on the water...- okay, who am I kidding, I wouldn't be trying very hard...lol

If only the whales came in close to the bay.. then it would be a triple whammy  ! Cohan  ;D ;D ;D

Dave - I begin to see what turns geologists on! A crevice bed beckons ever more. I remember seeing superb plants of shrubby echiums in Tasmania, but the Valerian looks as though it could become a rather beautiful menace

If i had the space in the garden here and access to similar rock I'd definitely be keen try to replicate the look of my first pic above Tim ,as in my eyes it's just about par excellence in terms of crevice work ...the only difficulty would be the number of plants required to fill all the nooks and crannies...
