Port FitzRoy
Port FitzRoy on a lazy Saturday afternoon – Great Barrier Island, New Zealand

Saturday afternoon, our last day on the island, we took the car and headed to Port FitzRoy. Port FitzRoy is located on the calm waters of the west coast of Great Barrier Island, and is the largest city on the island. The town consisted of a burger hut and a couple of small stores.

We ate fish and chips at the dock and watched people fishing off the boat ramp. Some were fishing with full rods, others were just using hand lines. While we were watching, one fellow fishing a hand line pulled in a good sized (~3 foot) sting ray.

Awesome photo. Definitely captures the local feel. I like the angle you took it from. And the cool, overgrown rowboat. Fish and chips on the dock. Seeing a 3′ sting ray pulled in on a hand line. I hope these wonderful scenes and memories are imprinted on you forever. The photos will definitely help that!

It was funny, when I saw it on the map before going to Great Barrier, and saw it was a main port and the biggest town I was expecting a bit more. Then we get there and there’s litterally three or four buildings.
