Across the inlet to Waipiro Bay

Just before Russell is this beautiful spot out in the Hikuranga Inlet. Seen from Te Uenga Bay is this coastline in the distance named Waipiro Bay, I've heard that apparently you can take a ferry from Russell in their mail run and it stops at all the little islands around this area including here - I think we are going to look into it at some point. The only thing I can find out about this island is that it has some sort of retreat/bed and breakfast on it so that may explain the buildings on the other side.

We have the beginnings of Spring here, a very windy last 2 days and I think I have the "Roses bug" as I bought 2 more rose plants from my work. A "My dad" and a "Cappuccino" to go with my "Catherine". 

Linking up with Skywatch Friday.


  1. My Dad loved yellow roses. I might have to get My Dad to plant by his headstone next time I'm home. That's a spectacular bloom. That view of Hikurangi Inlet with all it's anchored yachts looks like something out of a dream holiday for me. (F)

  2. If we ever get to visit NZ again we must take that boat!
    Try Bourbon roses if you can..heavenly scents. I have Comte de Chamborde and Reine des Violettes

  3. Visiting the little islands would be a real treat. Beautiful photo!

  4. A ferry trip around the islands would be awesome.
    That harbour looks very peaceful :)

  5. That looks so beautiful and peaceful.

    All the best Jan

  6. You must be enjoying the spring buds and flowers. Take care.

  7. That's a wonderful composition Amy, so peaceful.. looking forward to hearing about the boat trip over to the island. It's so easy to get the rose bug especially with summer coming up and spring here already 🌹 All good here in Perth 💙
