Although the last couple of weeks has felt more like spring than summer, those fortunate to seek out sunshine off the beaten track were rewarded with some great trips this month. As Okarito is located right on the sea the weather is often sunnier than our neighbours just inland such as Franz Josef Glacier. So if you’re in the area and the clouds are rolling in, head out to the beach where you just may find yourself basking in the sunshine just 10 minutes away.
Warmer temperatures are finally here and it does feel like summer. There has been plenty of bird activity not only on the lagoon but right around the village of Okarito. A short stroll down the main street and around on the beach will probably reward you with some great close up photo opportunites for young paradise ducklings and banded dotterals. See you at the beach!
