|These fern trees are everywhere...I love them.|
|Marianna loves these trees too!|
|Marika and I and a fabulous view!|
|I decided to take the train to Wellington.|
|One of the stops was at a ski town…which since it is summer was pretty dead, but I think it might be where my friend Mike Power hung out years ago when he ski patrolled here.|
|I think the ski area is on this mountain (valcano) called Ngaruhroe .|
It was cold when I got to Wellington…probably about 55 and windy. But, while it didn’t really clear up, by the next day it was warmer and the wind had died down.
|There's a great cable car here....|
|When the two shall meet.....|
|I'm not the only one who likes swimming...|
But for me it was a bit too cold.
|I took this pix for Woody.|
|The Te Papa Tongarewa Museum here was wonderful...|
I spent most of a day there.
Of course there have been more rides….in some beautiful country.
|Snoopy and I have a swim!|
|Macy and I having fun...|
|My swimming rock is under water!|
Next week we go on our (my) first three day trek....what fun.
