This estuary is one of my favourite places.
I just spent a week here and this is just out the back door, opening up to the Tasman sea.
The files are rubbish quality, but you get the idea

some food...
Finn 'herding' the muscovy drake in the feijoa paddock.
Finn's bred to round up sheep but he's not that good at it and spends a lot of time annoying the ducks and chickens instead

The chickens usually freerange in the feijoas, but they've developed a taste for the fruit so they're kept out during harvest season.
It's hard to see, but the figs in the run have loads of fruit and they don't tend to fall, so we can harvest any too high for a lazy chicken to reach

The muscovys hanging out in the orchard eating fallen apples

'Cornish aromatic' apples for storage. One of my favourites

Orange tamarillo; a variety of South American fruit do really well in Karamea's climate

 
Never trust an airline that limits their passengers to one carry on iguana. Put this tiny ad in your shoe:
It's like binging on 7 seasons of your favorite netflix permaculture show
