Photographer's Note

Yesterday was a brilliant day on Chatham Island. As it was Saturday this is usually our biggest tour day so fine weather always helps. I made a morning tea break with my group at this delightful beach on the north coast of the Island, known as Ocean Mail. There are also two interesting nature walks here - one a Wetland Walk & the other the Aster Walk (to see the unique Chatham Island swamp aster which are currently flowering.

The unusual name of the beach, Ocean Mail, comes from the name of a ship wreck at a reef not far offshore while en route to South America. The flowers on the beach are non-native senecios from South Africa, according to the DOC sign at the beach. Note how crowded the beach is on Saturday morning!
