The second, Awana, was another amazing campground, where we stayed. There were many breathtaking views here making it one of the many unbelievable GBI Vortexes.
Next, is all the photos from the many hikes we did up and around Mt Hobson (Hirakimata) as well as to waterfalls and hot springs.
All of the Nature and Wildlife shots are next. Each plant and remarkable view I saw, seemed to have a character and spirit of its own..
Okiwi is where we spent most of our time on The Barrier. The campsite is surrounded by Whangapoua estuary and on the other side is the beach and surf break. Offshore you can see the rocky point where the waves break, and beyond that the side of Arid Island, looking so majestic in the distance. Towards the end of the slideshow are pictures from our hikes just north of Okiwi where we walked through farmland trying to discover some new beaches and interesting places, I think we found some pretty good ones! And of course the many amazing sunsets, full moons, and sunrises, that we experienced there.
Next, is Port Fitzroy, where we did most of our fishing and diving. We also got to travel by boat to one of the "Broken Islands" where we helped place and set rat traps to help in their eradication from the island in hopes of one day being able to have native birds return there.
Lastly, are all the other amazing beaches and bays where we went to camp, go fishing, and hang out and enjoy the spectacular views! What an amazingly beautiful place GBI is!
