The view from Karaka Point, looking down the Marlborough Sounds, you can see the wake from a small launch cruising past; off for a days fishing maybe.
This is a Maori totem pole carving on the top of Karaka Point. This carving tells a story, but as I am not a Maori I don't know just what it says, but I imagine the story is about the ancient Pa (Maori Village) that was built upon the hill, at some point this village was over run and the inhabitants killed. This was in the past well before the white people came to new Zealand.
Another view of the Totem Pole, the man near the top is holding a patu which is a type of weapon used in battle by the old time Maori's, these Patu were made mainly of Greenstone or granite, polished and sharpened to a razor sharp edge.
