In the evening we went for a walk down to the beach and around the block  it was windy but very pleasant

Ohhh....I wasn't pushing Shane over I promise!!! ;)

From this beach at Ferguson Park we are looking over to Mount Maunganui and Pilot Bay.

Rotorua, New Zealand - 18th January 2012

By: fleursmum

Hi Mum and Dad,

We had a big drive to Rotorua. Our first stop was at Rainbow Springs
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7175/6775014809_acded6fff9.jpg
we had a ride on a moa a flightless big bird that has been extinct for a long time.
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7145/6775022539_ed8a585873.jpg
next we went underwater to look at the trout
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7145/6775023859_983417fd70.jpg

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7142/6775031857_95a6072e5f.jpg
Next we saw a baby tuatara - the adults can go without eating for 6 months and only blink once in an hour!!  :o Not very exciting to watch!! ;) But the babies were moving around quite a lot.
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7165/6775035721_b6439da392.jpg
we had a little rest by the waterfall
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7157/6775037005_52310c8a88.jpg
this was the only kiwi we could take a photo of, the kiwi are nocturnal and so don't like the bright light of the camera flash.
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7017/6775040699_cf092514db.jpg
Now I am in the government gardens in Rotorua, this building used to be the bath house, people came to bathe in the hot mineral waters for their health.
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7028/6775045837_fa63e9392a.jpg
behind us is the natural spring where the baths water comes from, the temperature is 212 degrees Fahrenheit and 100 degrees Celsius. I needed a reassuring hand in case I fell in  :( but I was ok!!
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7168/6775048367_0d218ed5d0.jpg
This carving is near the memorial fro the Maori men who went off to WW1.
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7032/6775054465_e7b345180e.jpg
Here we are sitting by Lake Rotorua
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7174/6775055705_a222183a80.jpg
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7030/6775070269_bf2da76476.jpg
You have to stay on the walking track here because the earth crust is very thin and can break, the yellow colour comes from the sulphur and smells like rotten eggs!! :(
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7161/6775074427_392eba6f01.jpg
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7164/6775081091_1bf378fa8c.jpg
On the way home we stopped at Te Puke and looked at the big kiwifruit - heaps of kiwifruit is grown in this area.
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7004/6775082295_ef28db90be.jpg
Early night for us tonight! :D

Love and hugs

Hi Mum and Dad,

Today is Australia Day so we went to the park to see what was happening.
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7009/6775209585_1ae8b8c175.jpg
We watched the flag raising ceremony and learned that the flag is made up of the English, Irish and Scottish flags plus the Southern Cross which is a star constellation in the southern sky.
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7004/6775211199_5a73bfb030.jpg

Happy Australia Day!! :D

Later in the day we went to Boronia to see a friend of Sue's, Freaky and I had a snack in the front of the car! :p

Orange, NSW, Australia - 9th February 2012

By: sararingham

Hi mom!

I have arrived safely in Orange... it's been nice and sunny here - it seems as though we're finally getting our Summer... Sara was telling me how we've had more than normal amount of rain this Summer... but Sara's probably been the only one enjoying it!

I'll do a proper update again soon with some photos... Sara has to take me around for some photos - I wonder what I'll get to see during my stay in Country New South Wales!

Write again soon!
