Another great day today although it was rather cloudy and we did go through some rain at times.
seeing some of the lovely old hotels, like this example at Cheltenham.
A stop at
the Te Apiti Wind Farm was rather cool.
I was able to stand directly beneath one of the turbines and listen to
its loud whooshing hum, something I have never done before.
at the Pukaha National Wildlife Centre, a conservation place with a lot of wild
birds. Unfortunately it was too wet to
see very much but the gift shop was interesting!
multi-directional sign at Woodville points to all the other Woodvilles around
Masterton was a lovely town and I would love to visit it again and explore it more. It is hard to believe, but it was lightly raining when I photographed these lovely gardens.
destination for the day was Castlepoint where we spent time exploring around
the local lighthouse which was built in 1913 and is the tallest lighthouse in
the North Island.
descended we were treated to a forty minute display of changing colours
lighting up the lighthouse. It was cold
and windy outside but worth going out there to watch for a while.
very limited internet at this place and I had a lot of difficulty uploading
photos. Which is why I have arisen from
my sleep and gone online now at this unearthly hour!
