Sophie Blokker Greeting Card - Pakake The Whale Island


Sophie Blokker Greeting Card.

Pakake The Whale Island Ahuriri - Napier.

Before the 1931 Napier Earthquake, the sea surrounded the Napier Hill.

Long ago, Whales would often enter the inlet. Sometimes they stranded themselves on the sand banks and shallows.

From the Western shores, the view from Napier Hill resembles a beached Whale, and this is why it was known by our Ancestors as, Pakake, which means Whale Island.

Spread a little joy in this world with these cards, that are adorned with Sophie's artwork which have been created with love.
