New Zealand: Goat Island

Pohutukawa Tree, Goat Island Reserve

This is a shot of a pohutukawa tree, one of New Zealand’s natives. During the summer it is covered with crimson flowers. Beyond is Goat Island and the marine reserve. It’s fun to snorkel here and paddle in the water with the huge fish swimming around your legs.

Don’t forget to enter my contest to guess how many books I will read during my holiday. Go here for details.

    All of your pictures have been great. The scenery is beautiful. Do you have many lighthouses in New Zealand ?

  2. Amy W.

    These photos have been stunning. Can I come for a visit?

    It has a lot of appeal in a rustic, craggy way.
