14th Nov 2016 - The Power of Ruaumoko Exposed

Another earthquake struck with a tsunami warning and this time I did not go to the moana as it was sounding strange as well as getting a text from whanau telling me not to. However, here are some stunning photos I found of what has happened to the sea bed around the Kaikoura area as it has been raised.

The bull kelp and paua are now exposed in the intertidal zone instead of being in the subtidal zone, below the low tide mark.

Oh how I would love to be able to explore there right now! *LOL*
