On Saturday we walked along the beach to the old lighthouse
It's a rather odd lighthouse, rusty ironwork and cement, no longer possible to access the spiral staircase
Lots of shags posing above us . . .
. . . and plant-life fossils in the rocks around
Our hotel was close to the marina, behind it is the hill we climbed
Towards the top of the hill, beneath a pohutakawa tree, is a statue of Captain Cook as this is where he where he first set foot on New Zealand soil.
A great view over Gisborne from the top of the hill. Saw loads of tuis feeding on the flax
