Lovely location

We stayed for 1 night in our camper van.

We arrived quite late after a long drive and received a warm and helpful welcome. The site looks straight at the falls - lovely.

We used the small but clean kitchen for breakfast. The showers and loo were OK. We hired a kayak for an hour the day we left and kayaked right up to the falls - great experience.

We saw a big pod of dolphins and we slowed right down and they swam around us and played for about 15 minutes before we left and continued our voyage. I took tons of pictures and I had my zoom lens on so the shots are great. I took 1200 pictures and have to ...

... right beside the boat. It was magical and Billy was beside himself with excitement. Alas we have to press on as we are way behind schedule but also out of the Bay. Billy obviously has his own way of doing things and as we are where we shouldn’t be, he decides to carry on as he wants to show us what he considers a very special little bay that he hasn’t visited for a while. It was an idyllic spot and there was a large shoal of fish ...

... is a flagstaff still today and a very good view of the surrounding bay and land. It is famous as the site where one of the Maori chiefs cut down the flagstaff bearing the British flag, four times in the mid 1800s. He had been an early signatory to then treaty but he believed (probably rightly) that the British had not abided by the treaty. The British re-erected the flag pole on three occasions but the fourth attack on it lead to ...

... bacon and egg muffin for breakfast, it was very yummy! I also brought a bag of sweets for the plane and used up the last of my change!
