Yesterday R was going down the main highway to deliver a load of firewood, so I went part way and got dropped off to do a long walk home. Would you care to come and see what I saw? Be prepared, it took over a hour and there are some hills. on the roads to get home. ( I prefer flat really )We start by the sign and head of to that gap in the trees.
I was glad of my jacket in the dark shady parts but just sweltered later on coming home along the roads in the sun.
As I walked I saw evidence of the heavy rain ( you know the one ) a month ago and the pond had been drained back to the original stream - probably cause it flooded too and they had to let it go - ( here didn't get the landslide to go with it , luckily ).There were lovely contrasts of light and shade - some parts quite dark and ominous. Some healthy stands of young Kauri and Rimu trees.( NZ natives ) ( just like the ones we lost in the flood! )
Near the other end of the track neighbours who border the stream had made it picturesque, by deepening it and had ducks, geese and animals.
