A song for Big Bay


Dinner when it’s cooked / breakfast when it’s shucked / surfing, food beneath our boards / all of Big Blue’s rewards / spend all our time living / no need to be forgiven / we exist in nature’s rhythm. 

Awarua Bay, also known as Big Bay, spans eight kilometres along the southwest coast of Te Waipounamu / the South Island. In this series of images, Hank Bilous takes us there.
