Golden Bay

Golden Bay / Mohua is a shallow, paraboloid-shaped bay in New Zealand, near the northern tip of the South Island. An arm of the Tasman Sea, the bay lies northwest of Cook Strait, it is protected in the north by Farewell Spit, a 26 km long arm of fine golden sand, the country's longest sandspit. The Aorere and Takaka Rivers flow into the bay from the south, it is part of one of the territorial authorities of New Zealand. The bay was once a resting area for migrating whales and dolphins such as southern right whales and humpback whales, pygmy blue whales may be observed off the bay as well; the west and northern regions of the bay are unpopulated. Along its southern coast are the towns of Takaka and Collingwood, the Abel Tasman National Park. Separation Point, the natural boundary between Golden and Tasman Bays, is in the park. North-eastern parts of Kahurangi National Park are in Golden Bay, it is known for being a popular tourist destination, because of its good weather and relaxed, friendly lifestyle.

Beaches such as Tata Beach are popular locations for retirees and holiday homes. Māori lived along the shores of Golden Bay from at least 1450, the earliest dated archaeological evidence yet found. In 2010 an extensive scientific study was made of Golden Bay by a team from Otago University led by Associate Professor Ian Barber, they plotted and investigated a large number of early Māori sites ranging from pā to kāinga to probable kumara gardens that stretch along the coastal arc from the base of Farewell Spit at Triangle Flat, 60 km eastwards to a pā site 10 km east of Separation Point. The iwi who occupied this area in 1642 were the Ngāti Tūmatakōkiri from the North Island. Dutch explorer Abel Tasman anchored in this bay in 1642. Ngāti Tūmatakōkiri rammed the Dutch ship's cockboat with a waka and four Dutch seamen were killed by Māori, prompting Tasman to name it Moordenaar's Bay. Archeological research has shown the Dutch had tried to land at a major agricultural area, which the Māori may have been trying to protect.

Barber postulated that the iwi may have been insecure in their control of the bay and its resources because of their own recent arrival. Little is known of the history of Ngāti Tūmatakōkiri people as they were extinguished by a Māori invasion during the Musket Wars about 1823. In 1642 Tasman saw at least 22 waka, he recorded that of the 11 waka that chased his ship, most had 17 men on board. This gives a total of about 200 men, with a population of about 500 people. Tasman had been in the bay five days when attacked giving the Māori time to assemble an attack force. Archaeological evidence has not shown any large settlements so it is that the iwi lived in whanau based groups scattered along the coast but in the eastern bay at Ligar Beach, Tata Beach and Wainui Bay where there are 20 known archaeological sites in a 10 km zone. In 1770, during his first voyage, English explorer James Cook included the bay as part of Blind Bay, but upon his second voyage to the bay in 1773 realised that it was in fact the location of Murderers Bay.

The French explorer Jules Dumont d'Urville appears to have changed the name to Massacre Bay. European settlement commenced in October 1842 with the Lovell family settling at Motupipi near the existing Māori pa site. Prior to the Lovell's settling, in March of that year a Mr Tuckett had discovered coal on the beach near the Motupipi pa. There was a report from May 1841, which stated there was coal in the area. In the 1840s, following the discoveries, the local population unsuccessfully sought to have it renamed Coal Bay. In the late 1850s, with the discovery of gold at Aorere, its name was changed to Golden Bay. In the Great Depression, miners returned to search for any remaining gold in a government-subsidised prospecting scheme for the unemployed, about 40 miners lived in a dozen huts around Waingaro Forks. In December 2011 the bay, as well as much of the Nelson/Tasman region, was hit by heavy rain and flooding; this affected many homes around the Pohara/Ligar Bay/Tata Beach/Wainui area. The road to Totaranui, a popular isolated tourist destination in Tasman Bay, was badly damaged and was reopened on 29 June 2012.

In August 2014, the name of the bay was altered to Golden Bay / Mohua

LA Bootleg 1984 is a live album by jazz guitarist Lenny Breau, recorded in 1984 and released in 2014. The album was recorded live at Donte's in Hollywood, shortly before Breau was murdered. After a long struggle with drug abuse, Breau was sober, he was accompanied by Ted Hawk on Paul Gormley on bass. The tapes for the performance were obtained by Randy Bachman who has developed a large archive of Breau's works; the album was nominated for best solo jazz album of the year at the 2015 Canadian Juno Awards. Music critic David Farrell of New Canadian Music wrote of the album, "The audio clarity is first rate on this 60+ minute set, Lenny dazzles in front of a willingly submissive bass/drums rhythm section. Chet Atkins once called Lenny "the greatest guitar player in the world"; this recording shows why."
