A Few More Photos from Matakana

Kiwis, (what New Zealanders call themselves),  take their recycling seriously!

I don't think I've ever seen duck eggs for sale before.

Have your tools sharpened while you watch.

A quaint village store.

Colorful steps.

Major Eye Candy


Monday was a holiday, so we took off with our friends to visit some of the beaches on the Tasmanian Sea side (west) side of New Zealand.  I don't think I will ever get tired of seeing the never ending beauty of the coast and ocean views just minutes away.  Around every bend is a breathtaking vista, one after another after another forever, and each unique in its own way.  This day we saw beautiful black sand beaches, craggy cliffs, and volcanoes covered with lush green foliage set as the backdrop.  At the end of the day I was truly on visual overload.  When I downloaded my photos to the computer I couldn't decide which beautiful scene to post to remember this day, so for the next few days you'll see some of my favorites.
