Around The Bays


Colonel "Sandy" Thomas, soldier and author, who has been visiting his old home town of Motueka. Unfortunately space does not permit us room to record much of this soldier's life. Suffice to say that an American company is to make a film of "Dare to be Free" -Colonel Thomas's book on his own escape from a prisoner of war camp. He's had an exciting life.

End Of Day


A few tiny rivulets remain to reflect the last rays of the sun and emphasise the cloud effects as the day ends at Tahuna Beach.
