Hello and on the low carb meals this time zucchini noodle amitriciana ?? lol
and knitting a sock as partner for my other 8ply sock
took this pic as we left Taupo for my bike riding adult nephews a large bike but weather not great as we left.....
a few years back we stopped here for a look
nice little creek flowing
up the stairs I go......a lot easier when my knee was fit
up the top looking around
the model replica of spiral train track......
the spiral goes through the trees you look at and if focus on brown spot in middle....that is part of train track ☺☺
back down those steps
and follow Paul back along the path with old train tracks.....many years ago as luck would have it a STEAM TRAIN came through but I only snapped pics of way before this neat spiral .......oh well I enjoyed what I saw back then 😆😆
along the road trip I worked on these tiny circular sock needles...
another lovely fall to look at.....
Now in Whanganui/Wanganui depending on Maori spelling
Today (Saturday) we had a walk around local market
set alongside the Whanganui river
a paddle steamer.....but not running while us here
we then drove to an interesting spot
a big long tunnel to walk through to the elevator
nicely lit up ☺
the lift took us up to the top of Durie Hill
spiral staircase to viewing area
where Paul took these pics for me while I saved my knee lol
happily waving to him
good view around but NO sight of the snow covered volcanoes too cloudy over them
about to come back down those spiral steps...
back down with elevator looking back along tunnel.....locals use this every day down to the town
Alternative steps.....no thanks lol
we drove to the top of this hill so Paul could climb the stairs inside this tower....
you can just see his hand in top cage area lol
we drove to a beach area and along the way saw this dragon growing out of a brick wall ☺
beach with black sand here
lots of washed up trees too
and it was very windy
life saver building
view from building
and zoomed in on a self made Teepee from branches.... neat
and my new favourite low carb snack blue cheese stuffed muhroom....
Well moving on tomorrow to somewhere else and hope for wifi again...
love and hugs out to all xxoo
