Cook's Beach, Mercury Bay


There I was standing at Cook’s Beach. It was beautiful there. In my fantasy I saw the little ship from Captain Cook in the distance. So tiny. Only 30 meters. I also did the Doubtful Sound, where James also was with his ship the Endeavour. It was like paradise there. All fjords and water surrounding you. I was very impressed by nature’s beauty there.
