This is Maori for New Zealand or (Land of the Long White Cloud)
This is Maori for Great Barrier Island (or Island of the White Cloud) which is off the coast of Auckland
A most beautiful bay on Great Barrier Island. We are fortunate to have a
summer home here. Here is a view from across the bay. Our home is just to the right of the rock peak in this photo about 1/3 of the way down, just left of a group of other homes. We cannot see another home from here!
Our thoughts are with all of the people who suffered in the recent
earthquake in Christchurch, South Island and wish them strength as they rebuild their lives.
