Summer Holidays

The pohutakawas were in full bloom during the festive season on Motuora Island. The campground filled up with happy campers enjoying the sunshine and the calm boating weather.

On new years eve we got together with all the campers for a huge pot luck dinner in the middle of the campground. The feast was enjoyed while watching the last beautiful sunset of the year from Home Bay.  After dinner the guitars came out and some very talented campers provided great entertainment into the night.


We have been keeping a close eye on the gannet chick during the past few weeks. It has grown quite a bit and seems to be strong and healthy. Unfortunately the second egg at the site was abandoned before it hatched. We have observed a number of other adult gannets pairing up which could be a good sign for next years breeding season!

Happy New Year from Sian and Toby
