A couple of years ago while messing around with the kids at the Hairy McLary park on Tauranga Waterfront, we saw a stingray lazily cruising along the rocks at low tide. He did several laps and didn’t seem to be in a hurry to get anywhere.
Now we live here, and every time I park in Dive Crescent (it’s $3 a day, the kind of car park that invites uncharitable comparisons to Auckland), I walk along the same path looking for a ray.
This morning, I spotted another one. He / she was a lot more translucent than you can see in the video, with more blue. I was delighted.
