TALES OF HELEN, ALEXANDRA AND LINDSAY
Helen, Alexandra Ough Dealy and Lindsay Alexander live in the Bay of Islands in an idyllic setting. Their house called Waipara or the Tree House is a New Zealand "Pole House" and is set on steep ground near the reserve above the town of Russell. This page gives access to their stories, tales, traditions, songs and poetry with a few pictures thrown in.
During the summer months HAL let their house out to friends and visitors. They vacate the house and live on a boat (Shearwater) in Matawhi Bay by the Bay of Islands Yacht Club. If you are interested in hiring their place visit the Russell website. When they live on Shearwater, Alex goes to school in a dinghy and more often than not has to row. But occasionally she is able to sail and is skilled enough not to ram any other moored vesssels on the way.
Theirs is a fascinating life style.
