Moeraki Boulders, Otago, New Zealand

I would love to see this in person one day! From the card: "The Moeraki Boulders are scattered along the beach at Moeraki, 40km south of Oamaru. The soft mudstone containing the boulders was raised from the seabed around 15 million years ago, and the boulders are being exposed as the cliffs are eroded by the sea." Otago is on the southern part of the South Island. (Thanks to Maria for this latest batch of cards, too!)
