At Abraham’s Bosom beach on Rakiura I learned about the Turpentine Shrub (will keep fires burning), spotted a paua shell, and was intrigued by the rocks with their vertical layers of soft and hard.

Turpentine Shrub, a bush with long narrow leaves. Paua shell on golden sands. Vertical layers of different kinds of golden coloured rock. Vertical layers of rock where softer rock has eroded away around a hard rock to form a tiny cave. Screenshot of map location of Abraham’s Bosom, halfway down Rakiura.
