Those who visit here.....are you sick of me yet lol
so Wednesday we took a ride on this boat...Ernest Kemp originally ran in Kerri Kerri but due to a flood ended up here which for this region is lucky
ducks seem to like this twin diesel boat
Paul was happy to be on board...
selfie as you do and must say this Samsung tablet takes very flattering selfies.....I sure don't look this good in person lol
leaving the little port on Taupo lake just near where it flows out to Waikato river but us heading out to the lake
many other vessels were out to on this misty foggy day....
24 of us enjoying this cruise of 2hrs
looking back to the port
ducks seemed to love flying long with us...
this cruise was taking us to some maori carvings on the rocks.....which are not 100s of years old as some may tell you but only 30 odd years and done by some young locals at the time
the begging.....can you see little animal faces?
more on the bigger rocks
a lizard to the left carved
and this mighty carving
selfie as you do....
a yacht full of tourists sailing by although motor running.....
back we went to the port after enjoying a trip around Taupo lake but no visible viewing of the lovely snowy volcanoes too much fog.....
In the afternoon we went to this other thermal place....Craters of the Moon
plenty of thermal activity and less stairs......although must say my knee after 4 weeks is getting better.....
we were well rugged up as pretty cold but the steam makes you feel warmer lol
yes Woody was out and about for this walk....
he looks so tiny..
steaming and bubbling sounds
good safe pathways here
the warmth all around us was great
there was heaps of boiling mud own there
looking back over the area
more boiling mud
and some stairs I did not climb......left that to Paul to enjoy lol
plenty of good steam and bubbling mud....some areas again over 100 celcius...eek
Hope again you all enjoyed 😆😆😆
