Moeraki Boulders

On the way to Dunedin we stopped at the Moeraki Boulders.  They were quite intriguing, massive boulders all over the beach and some of them had a mineral that was contained in the rock oozing out (it looked like tree gum).  They were all perfectly round and had formed inside a volcano.  To see our photos of the boulders click here.  After a few days of torrential rain, it was nice for this break in the weather, the sky was blue while we walked along the beach and climbed over the boulders, and then clouded over again almost as soon as we got in the car, so we were pleased that we timed this stop well.
