Fresh views of the river and (near) shore

We came across some very interesting photos and were given permission to publish them. These mainly aerial views of the river mouth area and a fishing vessel working very close to shore are ones most of us wouldn’t see.

Many thanks to ‘A friend of Waikawa’ for permission to post the drone photos.

One thought on “Fresh views of the river and (near) shore”

  1. I have found that the Fishing Vessel 63018 is very considerate when I’ve been putting my Kontiki out. He always moves away from the area that I’m fishing in when he sees me. That’s his livelihood!
