Kia whakatāne ake au i ahau!

I got so excited to show you the pig I kind of got ahead of myself. This is Whakatane. It's not actually on the east cape, but it is really close. The clouds were amazing this day.

The island in the background is Whakaari (White Island). It's actively volcanic, and a lovely dive spot, I'm told.

This is Moutohora (Whale Island). It's a wildlife management reserve (bird sanctuary).

This is a statue commemorating Wairaka, who dared break tapu and paddle the canoe to shore.
Nice work, sister.
