... and then walk up the volcano which makes up the island. We could see it across the sea from our apartment. It is New. Zealand's only marine volcano which means it is a volcano sticking out of the sea. We had watched while we ate breakfast that morning as it puffed away. It is far from dormant, let alone extinct.
