While we were in Hawke's Bay, we hopped onto the back of a trailer and were pulled out along the beach by an old, old American tractor! It was part of the 4-hour Gannet Beach Adventure experience
(click for link) to Cape Kidnappers
to see a gannet colony up colse.
We were treated to some great scenery and commentary as we were pulled along places you wouldn't think any vehicle could go! Even for 'cautious' folk like me, it was a fun trip. Of course, there were a few times when the driver told us to 'hold on' but mostly, it was quite pleasant going. Here are just a few of the photos that Hubby and I took.
This is part of the first colony along the beach. The second was a walk at the end of the beach, but we didn't go that far.
The gray babies were more interested in us visitors than the adults.
This was a great trip along the beach, even without seat belts!
