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.
