Punakaiki to GoldenBay, South Island, New Zealand

Cape Foulwind - what a terrible name for such a beautiful area! It had been previously named Rocky Cape by Abel Tasman, in 1642, but Captain Cook is to blaim for the name change when, in 1770, his ship was hit by particularly nasty weather as he rounded the cape. I am sure the Maoris have a better name for it????   Select the photo below to see more of this area.
