This wharf is opposite the Westpac Stadium and is nearly always covered in logs from the radiata pine forests in the lower North Island. Some days when driving past you can detect a strong pine aroma. The logs are mostly sent to Japan for making house framing and softwood products .. chop sticks?
To the left of the first photo you can see the Interislander ferry boat heading towards its berth next to where yesterday's photo was taken. Directly at the stern of the ship you can see the dip in the hills which is the start of the Hutt Valley. In the centre of the photo you will be able to pick out Soames Island
