Great, so peaceful what a rest! very nice shot Tony! greetings from Thailand Michel.

Tony Reid on May 12, 2008

Yes Michel, it is very peaceful. It is a long way from anywhere else too! If you look at the map to the right, you'll see no other buildings.

The Chatham Islands are quite remote.

Hi Tony, last port for the Volvo Ocean sailors! What a space. Did you have enough patrol:) Great shot! Thank you for showing. Greetings, Jan

Jan de Boer on August 6, 2008

It isn't the last port but it is when they have bad luck with their ship.

Thank you for visiting my Chatham Island shots jan. This location is quite remote, but a great place for stranded sailors to stop at.

Cheers, Tony

A road for walking alone

for biking alone

for driving alone

A landscape for jokking alone

for thinking alone

for composing alone

... best wishes from ... composer/pianist KWOT(Kostas)/Athens/Greece.

If you want to be alone, this is the place to be, Kostas. I drove around he island on my own. It was a good experience.

It looks exposed in the extreme, like the Subantarctic Islands. None of the forest that occurs on Chatham Island.

Tony Reid on July 11, 2009

Vast swathes of the Island looks like this, tanetahi. Where adequate fencing has been established, natural forest has regrown, like this shot at the JM Barker Hapupu reserve.
