Totara North Container Artwork...


Totara North is one of those tiny settlements in the upper north island just out of the Whangaroa Harbour. Apart from a few warehouse buildings and fishing boats it didn't take us long to drive through...however being from a small town myself discovering places like this is what I love the most.

We spotted this old redecorated shipping container down by the wharf near the water's edge. Whoever is responsible is very clever don't you think?

  1. Yes, the artist did a fine job. The shipping container certainly has been turned in to a awesome eye catcher.

  4. Very clever Amy.. there's a lot of detail here if you enlarge and look closer.
    P.s. Thanks for the compliment, I don't feel like a grandma either, my two grandchildren call me Gigi 😀

  7. Yes, very artistic and colorful. So much better than the original! We love exploring small towns too -- for the same reason... we grew up in one.

  8. I love it when things are re purposed and reused. Especially when it is as colorful as this.
