Clawing Your Way to the Top

Waipapa Bay, South Island, NZ 2007 Ajr
Anyone who has ever driven around New Zealand will be quick to recognise the quirky penchant we have for decorating our towns with larger-than-life regional features. The fishing town of Rakaia has its giant salmon; Ohakune has its giant carrot; Cromwell its giant fruit and so on. And, in and around the South Island seaside town of Kaikoura, you’ll find the assorted giant crayfish (NZ rock lobster) that the area is famous for. This little shop at Waipapa Bay, just north of Kaikoura is one of my favourites – I love the fact that the ‘adornments’ are almost as big as the building itself.
