164 - 3rd July 2006 - Waitangi, Kirikiri, and Scenic Drive
Morning mist at the campsite
Back at Waitangi
Inside the Maori Meeting House
We had to take our shoes off to come inside this building
Kirikiri - The stone building is the oldest in New Zealand
Trees with no bark
Maybe it sheds it's bark once a year?
Bridge over the river Kirikiri
Recreation Maori Fishing village - the chiefs hut
View across the river to three of the oldest buildings in the country
Rahui Posts indicate 'tapu' areas - sacred ground that is off limits - I think this is the source of the word 'Taboo'
Latrine - Sit on the bar and hope the stick doesn't break - otherwise you'll end up in the river!
This little hut was for storing potatoes
Fire making apparatus
Old canoes found in the swamp
Fish Drying Sticks
This held sacred objects
Cockerel in the Car Park
This one had very green feathers
Scenic View on a Scenic Drive
Nice isn't it!
