I've posted a 3 minute YouTube video on New Zealand fur seal pups playing in a waterfall pool.  While Mom is fishing in the ocean, the pups go upstream and cavort in fresh water until it's feeding time.

Very cool.  I love your choice of music too.  Nice job.

I hadn't expected to see that many pups.  A good time was had by all.  That must have been great fun to see.

Ah Ohau waterfall.  Did you get in the water with the cetaceans in Kaikoura?  How are the whales this year?

We got blown out at Kaikoura, but got in with Hector's dolphins at Akaroa.
