Young Endeavour

Young Endeavour featured at the Auckland Tall Ships Festival 2013.

Construction began in May 1986 in Lowestoft, England and on 3 August 1987 she began the long voyage to Australia with a crew including 24 young people. The magnificent sail training ship was given to the people of Australia by the United Kingdom as a Bicentennial gift back in 1988.

Te Henga (Bethells Beach)

A view of Te Henga (Bethells Beach) located in the north of the North Island, New Zealand.

Large sand dunes have accumulated in several phases over the last 4,500 years. This accumulation has occurred since sea levels returned to about their present levels following the last glaciation 6,500 years ago. These sands contain quantities of black titanomagnetite derived from the volcanic rocks of Taranaki and carried north by coastal currents. The dunes continually move in a dynamic coastal process.

The beach has been used as a filming location for several projects, including the music video for Shania Twain's 2003 single "Forever and for Always", the British/New Zealand TV movie The Man Who Lost His Head, and episodes of the U.S. TV series Xena: Warrior Princess. The New Disney Channel Original movie Avalon High was also filmed here during the battle scenes.

She's Like The Wind

Kiki runs to me when called. She loves sprinting across the grass (and up the trees).
