Yachting on Lake Horowhenua. There are several yachts on the lake and many on the shore. A number of people are on the shore and a small car and a van are parked on the foreshore. The shadows in the photograph indicate the time of day to be late afternoon. The macrocarpa trees to the left on the far side of the lake indicate the site of Te Rae o te Karaka Pa. In the centre background is Moutere Hill, the highest sand dune in the southern hemisphere.
