Taupo

Today we drove from Rotorua to Taupo...all of an hour!! We stopped at Huka Falls to have a look

This was from a look out above the falls

A boat came up the river as we were watching, the oower of the water just pushed kt backwards



From the path beside the falls

And off goes the river.
We called at the info centre to get Eve some postcards
This took my fancy!! I could sit here for hours.

Love this carved panel
I went for a walk in the late afternoon, it is still hot, it was a pleasure to get near the lake and get a breeze. There is an art trail here so had a look at a few of them

This was made form glass and signifies a maori cloak 


This is for all the people who have come to Taupo and settled here.
There weresome interesting sculptures in the park



This was another sculpture and over the road were
Two guys who had riden up to the Mulligans Bar and hopped off for a beer, not something you see everyday.
Last of the art works.....better think about dinner soon I 'spose.
Happy days.

Looks like the weather has been kind to you both. Taupo has a few more 'fancy bits' since I lived there years ago.

wow... you are getting out and about... love the water falls and the art works... I have always wanted to carve something in our sandstone rock wall... I never got to but I am sort of glad, as I am guessing if I sell I wouldn't get to take it with me...

Lovely photos again Sue ... that breeze off the Lake can be quite cold sometimes too. Nice that you had a bit of a quieter day & time to take in a walk around. Huka Falls always looks so spectacular.
