There are a lot of small rocky islands just off Hahei Beach

Now that's pretty... and I think I would rather like to live on something like that. [well, maybe a tad bigger.]
If I remember correctly, anything that's not privately owned is government land by default, right.. but citizens can 'homestead' or something and claim areas??
That's more of an English law thing. Doesn't really happen in NZ.
Hmm..ok, I need to do more research then.
See my comment below - I don't actually know much about the NZ law, which is proof that it doesn't come up very often as I worked in land law there for 2 years (and had one case of adverse possession all that time, but it wasn't govt land). Have worked in land law in the UK for 2 months now and it is a very common issue!
I've never heard of anything like that.
Google "adverse possession"
Working for a council it's something we come across all the time, as we own so much land we can't be constantly checking on it. So for example, if someone's been mowing the grass verge in front of their property for years, they can then claim they own it. Of course, when it's not a grass verge but a flat or larger piece of property that's fallen through the cracks at some stage it can pose a big problem.
In NZ there is still a doctrine of adverse possession but it's not nearly as wide as in the UK.

I see your camera got a new infusion of blue. Gorgeous.
Now I've this mental image of a pixel-stained techno-imp sitting inside a camera muttering about having to put in a requisition for more cobalt blue!
It's been a long day...clearly far too long.
I think I need a pixel-stained techno-imp icon now.
I think I'm going to have to make one...
Captioned 'In yr box, digitizing yr images'
and all that in 100x100 pixels! Yeah I can do it, might take me a tad though, what with one thing and another!
*Claps with glee*
You could leave some more letters out.;)
here you go!
