Here’s another of the neat pieces of art work that were in Gisborne…
The red sculpture above looked totally stunning when lit up at night!
One of the places we had been advised to visit was the historical wharf at Tolaga Bay. Apparently the wharf is the longest in the southern hemisphere. I have to say though, while it was pleasant, the drive there was awful (terrible roads) and overall it was a bit disappointing. We had been hoping there would be a cafe there where we could have lunch, but apart from a holiday park with a shop selling icecream and coffees there was nothing else there. Luckily I went prepared with a bag full of snacks.
We went on a walk that took us up to a look out and to visit the Cooks Landing place memorial. I only went three quarters of the way up to the look out before the vertigo kicked in :-)
Looking up the stairs to the look out.
Looking down the stairs…
The Tairawhiti Museum was very cool and well worth the visit!!!
The best part of the trip was Nathan and Lilly getting to learn to surf. They we awesome and were up on the boards in only about 20 mins. In all they had 3 days of surfing and had a great time. Now they would like to buy their own surfboards
You can see from the pics that Cam had a good time on the beach too!!
