I popped in to say hello to Amy at
and discovered she hosts a Friday party called
It seems to me like a good way to look back on
what has happened and where I've been over the past week.
It is a weekly photo journal that I can
email to my family in France as well.
Two weeks ago we did a little road trip
from Auckland to Palmerston North...
1000km in total... not so little!
I wanted to visit my elderly Aunt and my cousin.
The weather that day was dull and overcast
not good for taking photographs
but great for travelling - not too hot.
We passed by Lake Taupo which is a mecca
for trout fishermen and women.
In fact people come from all over the world
to fish here!
We stopped at the southern end of the lake
for a picnic lunch.
There are beautiful streams and fishing pools
just a short walk through the bush.
Driving through the central plateau
there are three mountains
Ruapehu, Ngaruahoe and Tongariro.
I took this photo of Mt Ruapehu out of the car window
(flying along at 100kph!)
I was hoping the cloud would lift
so I could get a better photo for you - sorry, no such luck!
The day after our journey
we took my Aunt for a drive through the
beautiful Botanic Gardens.
Palmerston North is well known for it's rose gardens.
I was impressed, the garden was immaculate
all the roses are named.
I was back at work this week...
it's always hard starting back after a holiday!

Take care and
be kind to one another
