Road tripping in New Zealand this week…

between Taupo and Tongariro National Park…


which is situated at the south-eastern end of Lake Taupo.

The main thing we enjoyed about our road trip was that we

could go when we wanted to go…

 

and if there was no traffic about

pause on a bridge for shots like this.

Statues in Hamilton Gardens…

appear to be of a smooth texture,  until…

one takes a closer look.

There are times when I think I am the only person in the world

who would not know where this sign post was a week or two ago. 

I you are the other person, it can be found

on the Hobbit Movie Set near Matamata

on New Zealand’s North Island. 

Texture noted??

Friday, September 21…its our last day of third term.

School’s out for two weeks  

MGW has not been well this week and

will welcome the final bell of the day.

Monday morning and will (hopefully) be

winging our way to New Zealand

for a quiet road trip before our son’s wedding.

Some of the extended family are already

enjoying the sights and experiences

to be found in 

Aotearoa,

The Land of the Long White Cloud.

Just a couple of reflections this week.

A Corio Bay seagull dips low on Corio Bay

creating a mirror image reflection.

A still, foggy morning helped create this image on Corio Bay.

I call this Follow Me.

Although Cee is still on a break

I decided to post a BW this week anyway.

Baobabs don’t grow near water…at least

not the baobabs I have photographed.

However, Photoshop does not know this fun fact.

A bona fide reflection from August 2017.

Signs from… Vancouver Island, this week.

The Church of Our Lord…


if my memory is correct, was in the grounds of

St. Ann’s Academy which was situated

just over the road from our hotel.

 Craigdarroch Castle is worth a visit

for those visiting Victoria BC.

The sign in context.

This sign brought a smile to my face.

 

And this sign, or signs, fell into

the ‘What a good idea’ category.

I suspect it will be in full bloom by now.

The colour version, I believe,

the sign is easier to see.
