Item information:

Drone (Beach fishing using technology. About $8000 worth of drone on its way back to the beach after dropping its load of bait and hooks about 700 metres from shore.
Makes for an expensive fish but what price on the pleasure and excitement of landing a big one.)

Toilet with a difference (The main tourist attraction in Kawakawa is the colourful public toilet designed by Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser. First visiting New Zealand in the 1970s for an exhibition of his work, he decided to make the country his second home and bought property on the Waikare inlet, east of Kawakawa. In 1998 with the help of the community he transformed the town’s public toilets into a work of art.)

Grows On You (We found this old 'structure' almost as far south as one can go in New Zealand.
