For those that
don't google things asked why there were only 2 Sisters in my photo but are called Three Sisters.
Once upon a time, along the coastline of Taranaki, there were four 'stacks'. It seems that they had no name but were still beautiful to see. After the turn of the 20th century, one was reclaimed by the ocean, leaving what were eventually given the name of the 'Three Sisters' and people came from far and wide to take their photograph .

In 2003, one of the sisters disappeared in a storm but no one had the heart to call them Two Sisters. That would have been a cartographer's nightmare and there was so much signage that would have to be changed.
Eventually, a third stack arose again, as pictured below, but apparently, it wasn't good enough to be called a Sister.
And then, sometime in 2014, after much erosion and hard work by the ocean, an appropriate 'Sister' emerged from the coastline. The local newspaper declared that it was, indeed, a new addition to the family and now the Sisters are three again.
We shall watch with bated breath to see if it becomes an animal companion to the lone elephant that keeps the Sisters company.
