The Other Jewel of Flinders Chase National ParkPosted: December 15, 2012
Flinders Chase National Park is famous for its Remarkable Rocks (series of photos staring here) but that is not all it has to offer. Another famous place in the park on Cape de Couedic is Admiral’s Arch.

Admiral’s Arch is an amazing rock formation; sculpted and eroded over time to create a huge natural rock arch. Hundreds of stalagtite-type formations hang from the roof of the arch that frames the rough ocean beyond. In the foam and waves of the ocean reside a colony of New Zealand Fur seals that use the rocks to rest and warm themselves. It is amazing to watch them jump back into the tumultuous waters with ease. If any human were to jump in, they’d be lost forever.
In this image, this seal had just woken up from a rest and was on his/her way back to the ocean that sustains it. This isn’t the sharpest image, but I love the lines of the rocks and the seal’s body.
