A week in New Zealand

We spent a lovely week in New Zealand.  It was green and cool, with a few rainy days (a novelty for us at the moment).  We spent most of our time around Tauranga, with trips to Whakatane, Rotorua and north of Auckland to Whangarie and Dargaville.  Here's some photos from our holiday.

  2. Ah, “green, green, green grass”, it looks so lush, if only we could have some more rain. We had 60ml last week which put some water in our dam but not enough to fill it. I hope you got some out your way too Liz. From your photos it looks like you had a lovely holiday.

  5. You have a jacket on! It is hard to think that it is colder else where sometimes. Great photos Liz and glad you had a great time. Your Mum's veggies look pretty darn good. Green thumb is definitely in your genes.
