driving foreshore from Riverton to Oreti Beach in Invercargill

Driving foreshore from Riverton to Oreti Beach

Driving foreshore from Riverton to Oreti Beach in Invercargill was an impromptu delight this past Sunday.

What a magical journey. Warned that we could get stuck where the Waimatuku Stream empties into the Foveaux Strait, we opted to make the journey at low tide in our new-to-us Santa Fe four wheel drive. The drive to Riverton usually takes 30 minutes by driving north on State 6 and turning left at State 99 to the sleepy coastal town.

I’m reminded of an earlier drive to Oreti Beach to watch the sun setting over Riverton-Aparima way from the northern part of Oreti Beach in Invercargill, Southland, New Zealand.

The result from Day 15 is titled “Southland Skies – Oreti Beach Looking Over to Riverton.” 

A BONUS BELOW is a 7 minute video of the drive on the foreshore. It is exclusive to those who read this blog.
