    My holiday snaps....(Sorry 56k'ers)

    Well, did a bit of a road trip and went and saw some family (free acomodation, yeah!) and took a few snaps along the way. (Plus another shameless plug for 'ole NZ!)
    These were in Tauranga (cheers Aunty!) around, and on top of Mt Maunganui.

    Used the oakleys as a filter...




    The view just before getting to my Uncles place.....


    Pt 2 to come.....

    Pt.2

    My Uncles house, which he renovated by himself (including the stone work)

    The view from the lounge.....

    The stained glass window version of the still semi active volcano you can see from the lounge (White Island)





    His dog Whittaker

    That is pretty much the ammount of people we saw the whole time



    This is where we all went out to collect mussels......

    Poor wee fella

    And of course, the trusty Astra. Looking a bit sacked with all the gear in it (the snorkel gear,the fishing gear the surfboard............)


    My Uncle does farmstays and B&B so if you ever come down our way...... gimmie a shout.

    Great pics of a cracking country, mate.

    I almost went there for 3 months once, but it involved getting married - needless to say it's still on my to do list (ie visiting NZ)

    Maybe when I get the pics developed of the fish we caught and tell you about the snorkeling for kina (sea urchins) and Paua (abalone), surfing and body surfing just below Mt Maunganui and just being able to relax in a place where you can sometimes go a week without seeing your neighbour................. you'll want to come even more. Heaps to do and see here, you just need the time..............

    Off to bed now.............have fun at work you guys!
