A New Zealand Northland Christmas - Post #7

Christmas Day - Part 2

It seemed that around every other bend in the road we discovered yet another beautiful vista composed of deep blue sky, crystal clear turquoise water, and blooming pahutokowa trees.

Close to the northern most part of NZ we came to 90 mile beach, long, flat, green waters and sand that never stops.  Some vacationers were sun tanning, or playing in the water, others were driving their cars and four wheelers VERY fast along the edge of the water and yet others were sand surfing on the dunes.  There was a vast and seemingly endless view in all directions.

We finally arrived at the northern tip of New Zealand, Cape Reinga.  To see my favorite shot and read about the Maori tradition of this sacred spot, click HERE.
