Looking towards Anakiwa Bay from the side of the scenic road around the Queen Charlotte Sounds
My World.
Anakiwa wharf built for the students of the Cobham Outward Bound School to learn sailing and other skills to built confidence and self esteem in the youths of the Nation, they also have plenty of land bound skills to learn.
The day we were there all the student had been out sailing and ended up mooring their boats over near the other boats, then the poor people had to leap over board and swim to the wharf fully clothes and carrying all their own gear! Pretty tough, specially for the poorer swimmers and it was not a very warm day.
Do join in and share your Would with us all, on the My World Meme.

Your world is very beautiful. Loved both the snaps and what a contrast between them.

That sounds tough, but like it would benefit anyone who did it.

It is so great that through this electronic medium and the meme's we all play we can take a trip around the world in a days time and see places that most of us will never have the time or means of visiting.

Love your post and your blog. Thanks for visiting mine as well.
