Pigeon Bay, Banks Peninsula

New Zealand

"The house 'Craigforth' built with such care by Captain Sinclair, became a center of lively happy times with three lovely girls and two handsome boys. The garden was full of flowers, the walks lined with beds of daisies, violets, fushias, in fact every flower brought from the old country, all of which grew luxuriantly for the mere planting. The veranda was covered with Banksia roses...."
