"I wanna hang a map of the world at my house. Then I wanna stick pins in the locations that I`ve traveled to.
...But first I have to travel to the top two corners of the map so it won`t fall down."

Kaikoura means "eat crayfish" in Maori, and while we hear the local giant crayfish are a must-have delicacy, we spent all of our time in Kaikoura looking at seals. THERE ARE SO MANY SEALS IN KAIKOURA! Today's post is dedicated to my 2 year-old nephew Colt. He's one of our most faithful readers, and he likes seals. Enjoy buddy.

Peek-a-boo Mr. Seal!
Seals love to swim, just like you.
Can you count how many seals there are?
Seals love naptime, and so should you!
Baby seals are called pups.
This is an adorable little seal pup that made Shawn scream like a girl and run away because he swears it was a big, angry mommy seal.
This seal is on a rock.
This seal is on the grass, and Shawn has a new mullet haircut. Silly seal! Silly Shawn!
This is my new friend.
We shared a moment.
Then I had to go!
For even MORE seal photos (and some really awesome seaweed pics too), check out the full album.

There's a sweet photo album here, but it looks like your device doesn't support Flash.
No worries! Simply view the web album on Picasa.


  1. Hello long lost friends! I WISH I could have hung out with you and these seals! Hope things are going well. I miss you guys!

  2. I usually hate seaweed, but that was sweet as.
