Tramping…

Yesterday we went tramping on Mt Taranaki with our home schooling group. In the morning we walked the Wilkies pool track…100_7891 (600 x 451) As it is summer here the riverbed is very dry.100_7919 (600 x 451)  If you look closely you can see the blue tinge in the water. The water is so clear and fresh! Here’s the view looking back down the mountain100_7911 (600 x 451) Our house is out there somewhere;o) Unfortunately it wasn’t the clearest day so the view wasn’t as good as it could’ve been. On a clear day it is possible to see the South Island and Mt Ruapehu in the middle of the North Island. We headed back to the parking lot for a bite to eat before walking to Dawson falls…100_7948 (451 x 600) There was very little water going over today, it is much more impressive to see in the winter. 100_7959 (451 x 600) 

Today Ruth and I are going to see el Caballo Blanco, a spanish dance/horse show, I am so excited!!! Here’s a link if you are interested…http://www.elcaballoblanco.com.au/
