Pohutakawa on Golden Bay

Such a memorable stay in Collingwood, Golden Bay. At the very tip of the South Island we stayed in another beach bach surrounded by bush, water & wildlife and the whole place to ourselves. Hubby and daughter built a driftwood Oasis down on the beach. There's always endless supplies of driftwood to spark the imagination. I was hoping the Pohutakawa trees would be in full bloom at that time of the year but for some reason they were flowering late so I didn't catch the full display of reds. Oh well I'll have to go back again!
