More Touring Pics!
Hey there folks – was sifting thru my many NZ pics taken on tour and thought you MAY like to see a couple more!
I’ll try and order them from Top to Bottom North to South) for you!
Captions below the pics!
Cape Reinga Lighthouse – the tippy-tip of mainland NZ 34°26'S 172°41'E
It’s all down hill from here!
The road to The Cape!
Ninety Mile Beach, Northland. Not actually 90 miles long – in fact it’s about 96 kilometres long but still a pretty darn cool place
Let’s go right…
Let’s go left!
Looking down at the ground 186m (610ft) below through 38mm (1.5 inches) thick glass – the observation deck at Auckland’s SkyTower..total height 328m or 1076ft.
Another view of the SkyTower this time from the Viaduct Harbour
Some little runabout in the Viaduct! Google tells me that Ulysses is 192 feet long and weighs 676 tons in lightship configuration – and owned by a NZer!
Auckland Museum – awesome and definitely worth a visit!
Some of the volcanic activity at Rotorua
And some more!
