Matai Bay

We’re back at one of our favourite places in New Zealand, Matai Bay on the Karikari Peninsular in Northland. We left our previous parking place, albeit reluctantly, and headed into Kaitaia for a day to replenish the larders, book in for some work to be done, cross a few things off the shopping list, and catch up with a few people before making our way out to Matai Bay. 434 more words

Hidden Gem

We have found a lovely spot here in Northland, where we are allowed to park courtesy of local iwi (tribe) for a little Koha (donation). It is a beautiful Bay with lots of other little bays within the bay with many of them private with no public access which is why we feel very privileged to be able to stay here at this particular spot. 301 more words

Local food and climate change

We have to change our narrative around climate change. Our government tells us that we are too small here in New Zealand to make any positive impact on climate change. 378 more words
