        ... Waves continue their endless march to shore. To the east, the water is a deeper blue - the Pacific. The cape is where they meet. We climb to the lighthouse. The views are incredible. Our spirits are high, but not yet ready to depart, despite the taxing climb. There is a lone tree growing out of a rock far below us, near the dividing point between the two seas. It is 700 years old. Sacred. The remainder of the 10-hour trip is a bit anticlimactic, ...

        ... the spirits begin their journey back to the homeland of Hawaiki. The lighthouse is however the main attraction for tourists. It's a pretty sight and from here all you see is sea! If you sailed to the left you would eventually reach Australia, to the right even further away lies Chile, and northwards, if you missed Fiji, would be Russia. It wasn't far from the Cape that the first Maori arrived around the 13th Century from somewhere in Polynesia. NZ ...

        ... tourist attraction in Karawara a town just before Paihia. Steve was just as much fascinated as I was so a left turn 200 metres and drove into Karawara, past Klondike booze. I was looking for a public toilets. Yes I know but these ones are totally unique, I think actually not over stating the point, in the world. An Austrian artist, painter, ecologist, etc.... Settled in Karawara and designed the local public toilets. Hopefully I can show the pics now as really you need to ...
