He mihi mo te tauhou 2015

Kia ora, tenei te mihi ki a koutou katoa. He tau hou, he mahi hou.
He pehea ra nga hararei? He tino rawe taku wa ki te kainga.
He ruku i te moana, he hikoi i te ngahere, he tiki kai te kaupapa nui.
E hika ma, te ataahua o nga pua o te pohutukawa, te angiangi o te hau muritai.
He paki nga ra, he mahana nga po, he tino pai te whakawhanaunga atu ki te tangata.


Ko taku whanau tenei - ko te hakari ki Tauranga i mua i te kirihimete.

Te Ruku Kai Moana


The weather was primo, the sea flat and clear, and plenty of kai.
Spent 4 massive days diving to feed the whanau, 3 households....
kina, paua, kuku etc... this was spread out over a week between Xmas and New Years...
not a good look returning day after day...

Te Wera - War Trail


No trails and no huts, sleep where you drop.
Spent 3 days hiking through one of NZs most secret locations, by invitation only. Was a real privilege for our rangatahi who participated. We followed an ancient war trail devised to cull out the weak and useless. Fortunately those days are over.
