Recently our grandson was on a Field Trip to the Nelson Lakes and Golden Bay areas near the top of the South Island. The students were doing this as part of their second year Science Degree at Victoria University. He has very graciously given me the honour of posting some photos here.Thanks Josh, these are just a few of them.
Farewell Spit, at the very top of the South Island.
Golden Bay area, South Island.
Limestone Rock, Golden Bay area.
After a week in this area, they went to Lake Rotoiti, in the St Arnaud and Nelson Lakes National Park area, as the second part of the studies.
Mount Robert in the distance, Nelson Lakes area.
Lake Rotoiti, as I remember from way back in 1986, the most sand-flies ever all lived there. They followed you everywhere, in huge swarms.Mt Robert is on the right hand side, under the vapour trail.
Back to the North Island, views from above Wellington, looking south.
The swing bridge is near Makara Peak,where the wind turbines are.
And for map lovers like Louise.. Here is one for you, Fundy Blue!!!
And, as ( in my opinion) this post should close with some snow, here it is.
Mt Ngauruhoe, from the Desert Road.
