Tahuri Whenua hui, Haraki Marae, Te Puke

Another great Hui-a-Rohe for Tahuri Whenua, this time in the Bay of Plenty, Te Puke, Kiwi Fruit country (I'm old enough to remember these little tarts as Chinese Gooseberries, a more accurate term...). I stopped off at Maketu for some quiet time. Never been there before but definitely want to go back.

The famous Catholic church ... and a wee kina

 Manaia detail...

I was one of the first to arrive, the other members dribbling in from around the motu. Then we were called on...

In the midst of a growing district. Detail from the whare nui... and of course, the ukelele appeared!
