Te Wahapu O Whangaroa



Whangaroa Harbour - just beautiful - probably one of my favourite ever spots here in Northland. So quiet, peaceful, more of a seasonal holiday place but also a great fishing area.

On the welcoming sign into the harbour it says "Te Wahapu O" meaning The Door to Whangaroa "Whanga" meaning wait and "roa" meaning long. Not sure of that translation - maybe it means The door to waiting there for a long time? who knows but I wanted to stay there longer it was so lovely.

Linking up with Our World Tuesday.

  2. I like seasonal spots. There's plenty to see in the off season too.

  6. We would be happy waiting there for a long time for sure! Our kind of place...boats and water...beautiful to just sit and gaze at the scenery (me) and check out all the boats (he]...although honestly we’d both do a little of both!
