LOOKING IN THE SQUARE

A PICTURE RECORDS A MOMENT IN TIME. It will never return, but we have the picture to cherish

Raglan by the sea
.
Raglan seaside resort is a modest beach location 3/4 hour drive west of Hamilton. It has a popular surfing ocean beach and safe harbour swimming for those who prefer this.
The titanium-rich sand is black and can be picked up with a magnet if one wants to try, proving that it is basically iron sand.
.
Shellfish are also plentiful here as the local Maori population will attest, and sometimes swordfish can be caught in the waters off shore.
