We went on a boat cruise around Gisborne's harbour, on one of the oldest boats in town!! It had been recently restored, and the guys in charge were a couple of old men who were very happy to show us the best spots around and tell us about the place. The weather was brilliant, so we had a very good time...couldn't see any dolphins though :-(
The Cook Landing Site Historic Reserve on Gisborne's seafront marks the place where Captain James Cook first set foot on New Zealand soil in October 1769. This little guy in the picture is Nick Young, the son of the surgeon, he was the first one to see land.

Some more kiwi music for you to enjoy. This is Ladyhawke, who grew up in a town not far from Palmy. She won six awards at the New Zealand Music Awards last week, including album and sigle of the year. I love this song, and the video is fantastic. Hope you like it!
