This scene is a farm cottage and woolshed at the southern end of Lake Tutira, north of Napier. The lake itself is famous for having an island that moves about (more a clump of trees) – recently it has been in ecological crisis as a result of colossal runoff during Cyclone Bola in 1988 added to farm fertiliser runoff for many years. We camped there occasionally over the years.
