Paihia / Bay of Islands

Our next stop was North to Paihia along the Bay of Islands.    It was off-season, so relatively quiet while we were there, but stunningly beautiful.    Here are a few of the best images from our walk to Waitangi (where the Treaty of Waitangi was signed in 1840 – creating the modern nation of New Zealand) and Haruru Falls.   It was also our first encounter with several birds including the tuneful Tui.
