Tennyson Inlet

After a spell alongside in Havelock it was time to do a trip so we decided to do a 3 day trip round the outer sounds. Steaming along the Tawhitinui Reach looking back into Beatrix Bay.

Beautiful day, calm and sunny. Looking directly astern at Tawero Point which we had rounded shortly before.

The southern coast on the Reach, farmed like a lot of the outer sounds it seems to be going back a bit. A mussel farm along the shore.

Approaching Tennyson Inlet. The next settlement along is Penzance. These two are a mix of holiday and retirement homes. Very sheltered hence the moorings. There is a bush walk from here to Havelock with a lodge in Nydia Bay for the overnight.

The native bush in this area was not felled and milled as it was too hard to get it over the hill into the Ronga / Rai Valley where the mills and associated railways were.

Our anchorage for the night, peaceful spot. No fish.
