Te Araroa to the Lighthouse

This is leaving Te Araroa heading toward the east cape lighthouse.

Somehow in Te Araroa we missed seeing the largest Pohutukawa tree.
We found out later it is in the school yard.

This pohutukawa tree had several black and white shags (cormorants) nesting in it.
They are big birds and look an awful lot like penguins.

The guidebooks all give instructions for finding the path leading to the lighthouse like this,
"at the end of the road turn around and go back 500 meters. you will find the path behind the derelict huts."
The guidebooks were right.

So we donned our hats and off we went.
