Glorious! Looking across the many bays
These photographs are from 2009 but I want to get the loop of my travels correct so I'll throw them up here.  The coast was as thrilling back then as it is now anyway! 

We did it on our bikes back then but for the past 4 years I've been coming out here to do my work.  It's a fabulous part of the country and I doubt I'll ever get bored by the coastal scenes.

Te Kaha is the largest of the villages along this part of the coast (primarily facing North until you reach Hicks Bay at the tip of the East cape) and the bays around Te Kaha are jealously guarded by those that know of their beauty.  There has been a bit of development in the past couple of years with money being put into houses and resorts.  I'm not sure if that has increased the flow of Kiwi families to the area but I have no boubt that the resort accomodations are being filled by overseas visitors who come to the area for the game fishing that is simply a way of life out of this area.

One day I'd like to live here a few months and really explore the area but for now I'm happy to come through now and again and have the place take my breath away.
