wonderland...











Ahhhh hello Sweet-peas!!!!

From a relaxed and soothingly sleepy squirrel......
We have had such a fabulous time in Rotorua, yesterday we spent about 2 hours at the museum, the majestic building is the old bath house opened in 1908 and is filled with amazing displays of the history of the bath house, Maori exhibitions and our rich cultural heritage.
Two exhibitions were just such a treat to see, A la Mode; early 19th century fashion plates and the Wildlife Photographer of the year 2011. Some of the images in the wildlife exhibition were magnificent ,breathe taking and beautiful. 
Today we went to the "Redwoods" Whakarewarewa forest, New Zealands first exotic forest planted in 1899, it was the most glorious day and we spent ages strolling and photographing the towering Californian Redwoods and native bush.
Tonight we are staying in "Golden Springs" halfway between Rotorua and Taupo, the camping ground is set in angelic native bush with a thermal stream. The natural heated pool was just luxurious to sit in and listen to the running water and birds.
Yip you can feel the blissful peace of simple beauty wash over you.....


night night sleep tight.....
