Sailor's Grave / Te Karo Bay

Sailor's Grave is an area not far from Tairua... it is on Te Karo Bay and is a lovely beach area.

Ben and Mel take their dog Charlie here most days and go for a swim. It amazed me to realize that Ben and Mel are lucky enough to have their pick of gorgeous beaches nearby them and this is where they live! Very cool.

Charlie loves the beach!

Ben ("Bean") and Mel...

We even saw the actual sailor's grave! It is on a small hill at the beach... protected by a fence around it. The sailor apparently drowned in the water in the early 1840's. You can read more about this piece of New Zealand's history by clicking here.
