Russell Bustle

We had a great few days off wth Frank and Monique in Russell, about 4-5 hours north of Auckland. Here’s some highlights…

The beach is pebbled instead of sandy.

A really big tree.

Uncanny and suspicious resemblance.

It took us a while, but we coaxed this friendly churchyard kitty onto the grave of poor Kitty Walsh, who died aged 2 yrs 7 mos in 1892.

Should the brave men of the Hazard have known better than to board a ship called the Hazard?

Sunday roast at the Boating Club.

Ignominious punishment in the “hellhole of the Pacific.”
