Note the lack of green grass. Also if you look closely there is a large cruise ship at the wharf. The Mt. ( Mauao ) is hiding behind the left hand tree.
Behind that green hedge is the railway line and 4 large trains went by while we were there. They shook the ground and were very loud!. ( the photo quality is marred by the dappled shade )
Later I went for a long walk (in the heat ) with Dorothy who also likes walking. We saw this along the way.
Mt. Maunganui ( Mauao ). A little futher on we had to stop and wait at the flashing lights for this train.
