This was the view from their house, and is now hanging in their wonderful new home near Blenhiem.

This Drover's hut is well over 100 years old and is a well known icon in a field at the top of the Mamaku Ranges on the road between Hamilton and Rotorua.
It is in the process of being restored, using licken covered native wood so as to keep its aged look.

so this is to show the lovely coastline
