On the last day of 2013 we went on a boat trip in Mercury Bay where we got to see a whole lot of different, spectacular rock formations, caves and tiny islands. The water was turquoise and really cold, but of course we had to take a dip into this part of the ocean even if it was just for a few minutes. Later that day we discovered a beautiful and rather quiet beach and tested the water again, but it was just too cold for my liking.
