This is an auction for COCKLE COVE by Lorna Manson.

"Cockle Cove is one of the most beautiful and protected anchorages
in the Marlborough Sounds, set in 25 acres of virgin bush.
Only a few minutes walk from the beach are some of New Zealand's forest giants. Tracks lead around the bays, or a ramble up the creek to
the waterfalls makes for an enjoyable afternoon. Birdlife is
right outside with wekas coming onto the deck of local cottages. Lorna Manson was brought across Cook Strait from Wellington to Cockle Cove, in her father's yacht, Mana, as a very small child in 1925. The bay was bought by her parents Ernest and Ada Cull and it remains in the family still today. Lorna's late husband Jack Maddever made it his Sounds base for cruising in his famous yacht Nanette, which is still sailed today by their sons, Denis and Neil. A good friend of Lorna's, Christine Cole Catley inspired the writing of this book, which is lavishly illustrated with pictures, with text capturing the history - in all its flavours - of this most desirable of little coves. Lorna, now married to Ron Manson, has seen to it that Cockle Cove has remained the centre of holiday activities for the family and countless relatives, friends and visiting yachties who moor in this tranquil slice of paradise. COCKLE COVE is a personal history of this special area of the Marlborough Sounds in which Lorna Manson relates her experiences over many years - from her childhood spent sailing when the area was still frequented by whalers to World War Two and how it touched the Bay."
