As part of the ongoing exploration of our new home town we took a trip yesterday to Kauri Point, just up the road from Katikati town. Its an historic area with an old Maori pā site situated on it. Although I didn't find anything telling me any information about it which is sad.
However, we thought it was pretty special, and the way the light was settling in the late afternoon it was magical. The water was as clear as glass and the views across Tauranga Harbour were clear and faultless.

We even found a little beach with white sand and gnarled ancient pohutakawa. And there's a cool bush walk which we didn't try this time, we'll have to come back again.
There's interesting rock life we've never seen before.
I'm so excited about exploring more around these areas and explore the beauty that New Zealand has to offer. This really is a special country.
There really is such beauty in the small things.
