Last days in Gisborne

 Poihirari Maori pa and meeting house, I was disappointed on trying to photograph this iconic New Zealand piece of history, it was not as I remembered and seemed to be dwarfed by the arched gateway that I don't recall being there when i lived here 30 years ago, was hard to capture the history and the importance of this site
 I captured this beautiful sunset on the last day before my sisters left on their various ways.  In memory of fish and chip meals that we had with our parents as young children spent here before heading home to the country had a lot of meaning to me but left me sad that everyone was leaving again
beautiful street scene in suburban Gisborne
Beautiful homes in Gisborne
John stopped for me so I could capture the beautiful natural bush in the Waioeka Gorge
View of the mighty Waikato river next to the motel we spent the night of John's birthday on our way back to Auckland
We sat by the river and watched rowing teams taking these long row boats out on the river, was a lovely peaceful sight


  1. these are beautiful lovely houses great shots will borrow some for memeries

  2. hey thats why I put them up so we can share

  3. Doesn't the red in the Marae stand out against the green. Those pink blossoms were magnificent.

  4. Forgot to say the sunset was well captured sis.

  5. I think the top image of the pa is lovely, lovely angle that you captured. All the other images are lovely too.
