Hi Mum,
Today we drove up to Ballarat to have a walk around the lake and to look at caravans - the weather was so bad we just looked at the caravans and them came home.

Paeroa, New Zealand - 15th January 2012

By: fleursmum

Back again Mum,

On our way from Auckland we stopped at Paeroa and had a photo with the big Lemon and Paeroa bottle. This is a natural mineral water plus lemon drink that used to be made here. It is very popular in New Zealand.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7006/6745936817_22fc12a735.jpg

This is the park where the big bottle is
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7167/6745941197_8801b75728.jpg

and on our way out of Paeroa we stopped at another park to have a look at the river and the swing bridge, this park is very popular for picnic's and for bush walking
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7020/6745950059_29be5271b2.jpg
Hey Mum I think Binky was trying to hog the photo here!!  ;)

By: fleursmum

Hi Mum
This afternoon we had a little look at Tauranga
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7008/6746034151_08bb20060e.jpg
this Maori canoe is used for special days and ceremonial occasions
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7168/6746039265_1427e7d457.jpg

Mount Maunganui, New Zealand - 16th January 2012

By: fleursmum

We drove here from Tauranga to have a walk on the beach

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7008/6746055851_d195a3835c.jpg
this is the harbour side of Mount Maunganui - it was a bit windy as you can see!!
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7014/6746069651_0096b63d92.jpg
Now we are on the ocean side
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7005/6746071953_03b9986ba7.jpg
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7017/6746076553_021b8d7279.jpg
a container ship called the Rena ran aground on a reef 20 km off this beach last October and all kinds of things have been washing up on the beach, but today it looked really beautiful.

Tauranga, New Zealand - 17th January 2012

By: fleursmum

Hi Mum,

Today we went for a boat ride on the Tauranga Harbour - it was a bit windy and bumpy but we had a good time!  B)

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7161/6774994783_e4a5d069e3.jpg
Here goes the boat into the water
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7010/6775001025_71f4293739.jpg
Off we go!! :D

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7019/6774998363_4eaaab68d1.jpg
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7157/6775003575_b39a47e8e6.jpg
In the afternoon we went to a friends house at a place called Te Puna - there was a great view out the window to the harbour

Rotorua, New Zealand - 18th January 2012

By: fleursmum

Hi Mum,

Today we went on a big drive to Rotorua. Rotorua is also known as Sulphur City because of all the geothermal activity that happens there - the place smells like rotten eggs!!! ;)
Our first stop was at Rainbow Springs
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7175/6775014809_acded6fff9.jpg
Here we are with a model of a moa - they are flightless birds that are now extinct
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7030/6775016133_9d81055fb4.jpg
It is a bit hard to see but up the back is a kaka - which is a NZ parrot
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7145/6775022539_ed8a585873.jpg
next we had a look at the trout from under the water
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7145/6775023859_983417fd70.jpg
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7175/6775030531_7ab90ca5ea.jpg
Sue says sorry for the blurry photo!! :rolleyes:
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7145/6775029277_7dc74878a9.jpg
this is a baby tuatara these are really old reptiles, we found out they can eat once in six months and breathe once in 1 hour - no wonder the adults don't do much!!!  :D
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7165/6775035721_b6439da392.jpg
we found a nice waterfall to have a little rest by and then went off to see the kiwi's. We only got one photo because you can't take photos inside 'cos it scares the kiwi's.
This one was ok though!  ;)
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7157/6775037005_52310c8a88.jpg
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7022/6775042079_b9d0bdd287.jpg
Now I am in the Government Gardens in Rotorua - this building used to be the baths - the hot mineral water was piped in and people could go and soak for their health. Now it has a spa inside and a museum and art gallery
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7028/6775045837_fa63e9392a.jpg
Behind us here is the spring where the water for the baths comes from - it is 212 degrees Fahrenheit or 100 degrees Celsius. I didn't want to fall of this wall and into the water!!!!  :o

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7016/6775052057_8558f7accd.jpg
These carvings were surrounding the memorial for the Maori soldiers who had served in WW1
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7032/6775054465_e7b345180e.jpg
Lake Rotorua
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7159/6775061209_34e950d6f8.jpg
the water was boiling up out of the ground and the sulphur smell was very strong  :thinking:
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7030/6775070269_bf2da76476.jpg
you have to stay on the path here cos the thermal activity is changing all the time and the crust of the earth can be very thin. The yellow on the rocks is from the sulphur.
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7031/6775077067_95ea23359b.jpg
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7160/6775079849_e65db1538b.jpg
we came home through Te Puke and stopped to look at the big kiwi fruit, there is alot of kiwi fruit grown around this area
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7004/6775082295_ef28db90be.jpg
Early night for us tonight Mum, we had such a busy day!!

Love and hugs

Hasune

By: fleursmum

Hey Mum,

Today we are driving back to Auckland but we stopped at Waihi Beach for a break
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7159/6775093331_d1dbc52c85.jpg
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7009/6775094611_a63b395cb0.jpg
this photo looks really stormy but it wasn't, it was a hot day
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7024/6775098359_263b2deb16.jpg
I like this beach Mum!  :D
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7159/6775101913_8276402124.jpg
