SLIPWAY CROSSING is not a road sign that you see every day. This is at Doug Shmuck's Boatyard.
Steve is entering the Pohutukawa archway.
Much of the track is like this section. Carved into the cliffside. Maintained by locals, mostly yachties, for the benefit of all. Thank you!
An "inside view" of one of the Pohutukawa trees, which win the gnarly contest for sure.
A bit ahead on the track, Steve is adjusting his iPod podcast selection.
Since we first sailed out of NZ in 2000 there have been countless flash new waterview homes built.
This is English Bay. Around the next bend the track heads into the forest, then through the mangroves on boardwalk.
