Hallam Cove

After leaving Elaine Bay we steamed north toward Hallam Cove.  Approaching the entrance with Mt. Shewell in the background. The farm in the photograph is owned by one of the extended family.

The homestead at Te Towaka at the top of Hallam Cove, as usual a mussel farm in the bay.

A penguin, not easy to photograph as they dive on approach. The people in the sounds find them a nuisance as they like to nest under houses, noisy and smelly. These are the Blue Penguins, the smallest in the family.

Leaving the Pelorus Sound we round the point into Forsyth Bay, WW II gun emplacements on the point. Mostly manned by the Home Guard.
