Moeraki Boulders

On the way ke Dunedin, singgah di Moeraki Boulders...melihat batu-batu
luar biasa di Pantai ni.. pemandangan kat sini cantikk sangat...

Diambil dari
wikipedia....aku malas nak describe, so copy paste je..hiks..

Local Māori legends explained the boulders as the remains of eel baskets, calabashes, and kumara washed ashore from the wreck of an Arai-te-uru, a large sailing canoe. This legend tell of the rocky shoals that extend seaward from Shag Point as being the petrified hull of this wreck and a nearby rocky promontory as being the body of the canoe's captain. In 1848 W.B.D. Mantell sketched the beach and its boulders, more numerous than now.

Nampak tak batu-batu yg timbul cam tumbuh dr laut ni...

The Moeraki Boulders are unusually large and spherical boulders lying along a stretch of Koekohe Beach on the wave cut Otago coast of New Zealand between Moeraki and Hampden, which located at 45°20′42.99″S 170°49′33.82″E / -45.345275, 170.8260611. They occur scattered either as isolated or clusters of boulders within a stretch of beach where they have been protected in a scientific reserve. The erosion by wave action of mudstone, comprising local bedrock and landslides, frequently exposes embedded isolated boulders. These boulders are grey-colored septarian concretions, which have been exhumed from the mudstone enclosing them and concentrated on the beach by coastal erosion. [1] [2] [3] [4]
