A peaceful Russell........Bay of Islands........! by 


The peaceful little village of Russell in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand can be quite busy during the summer season with tourists and holidaymakers.
Once called the ’ Hell Hole of the Pacific ’ due to it being the first port of call for many Whalers and Trading vessels in the late 1700’s early 1800’s. It was once the capital of New Zealand.

    Beautifully captured, nice framing with the Pohutukawa!

  • Thank you kindly Kathy – the seats are dotted along the waterfront making it a very pleasant place to sit and admire the view across to Paihia with an ice cream from the old Four Square shop……!
