Rangitoto Wharf

Today was the first day of recording baches at the Rangitoto Wharf bach community.

This group of baches is located on the southern side of the island and is the largest of the three, slightly larger than Islington Bay.

This is usually the central hub for ferries and tourists however the wharf is being rebuilt which is why we are taking the ferry to Islington Bay for fieldwork. Starting at the western end of the community, we worked our way back to the east, towards Islington Bay, and recorded 13 baches.

We were also lucky to get a lift back to the ferry, saving an hour-long walk. Tomorrow, we will be returning to where we left off today. /MF
