Walking alone on Karekare beach
In 1825, the Ngapuhi tribe came sweeping through this area from the north. The warriors from the local Te Kawerau a Maki tribe fought bravely, but they were no match for the muskets the Ngapuhi had obtained from the British. 2000 lost their lives.
Some say spirits continue to haunt these beautiful beaches of Karekare but seeing Jordi walk in harmony with the wind and waves and sand ... all I felt was peace.
