Kina Beach? Yeah, nah…

Kina Beach is a favourite 6km walk, enhanced by being a good source for kina (sea urchin) shells.

Not this year.

Found none.

At all.

They could possibly rename it Aporo Beach, a loan word in the Maori language for apple.

Because the beach is strewn with them.

Cyclone Gita ripped through the orchards in Riwaka and Motueka on Tuesday, washing much of the windfall fruit out to sea where it’s been redistributed along the coastline.

Along with various other detritus
