Paekak Pukerua

A photo looking south, showing both the road along the Pukerua Bay shore and a long distance passenger train, probably bound for Auckland, taken a few years ago. Officially the Kapiti Coast begins about 1 km further along this road and ends north of Otaki.

As conservationists, one of things we always notice is the many magnificent native trees around here, not only the pohutukawa, but also cabbage trees, rata and karaka, among others  — a great entrance to Kapiti when heading north! 🙂
