The Great Adventure: Day Four: Russell -The Last Bit

This is the last of the postings of The Great Adventure.  I enjoyed the trip immensely.  The sights were exceptional and with Pauline as a guide it could not have been better.  It was just a shame about the weather for some of the time.  But, hey, I shall be back and I shall take all those photos that I was thwarted from taking.  So today's photos are some more of Russell formerly known as Kororareka,  and the first permanent European settlement and sea port in New Zealand.

 A demonstration for the tourists from the three cruise boats in the bay
 Seafront buildings
The Police Station
 Now you know!
 We decided to shelter from the rain and have a coffee (and, of course, some home made cake)
 I couldn't resist including this photo because of the shop sign

However I thought this the better photo to convey the dismal quality of the day


  1. Aye it looks a touch damp, a beautiful place none the less. You should be used to a bit of rain by now. The police house is grand.

  2. I like that police station! And it looks like a nice café too, even in rain...
