We finally made it, to the tip tip tippity top of New Zealand! Cape Reinga is actually the point you walk out to, and here you can see to the east...
and then to the west...
It was beautiful. And definitely required a selfie. (Ryan has me adding 'ie' to the end of way too many words...)
Cape Reinga is actually a very spiritual place for the Maori people, so the whole area is protected by a national park.
The lighthouse was really cute, and actually still functions.
Right behind me here is where the Pacific Ocean meets the Tasman Sea. You can even see swirls in the water from the different currents meeting. Just think...across that water is the good ol' U S of A.
A few last shots of the lighthouse:
What a beautiful day.
