Kawhia / Waitomo in the photovan .
It's been a while since I did a tour in my photovan so this weekend I did a short tour over the mountain from where I live and visited Kawhia which I have never seen before
It's one of those places that has a lot of character and some interesting buildings .
I parked the photovan and went for a walk around town yesterday
These are a few shots I got in Otorohanga
I'm getting angry !
still sorting through what to post !
And some at the natural bridge [arch?]
The springs at Kawhia ...
It is like 'hot water beach' where you can dig into the sand and sit in a pool of hot water . these two guys were getting so hot they had to keep running and getting cold seawater to cool themselves down !
I had the 70-200 with me this time as well
This shop was seriously 'in the middle of nowhere' and I commended the owner on how tidy the place was . He told me that once they painted it up properly their business increased drastically .
Maybe one day you could visit New Zealand , but then but you'd have to pronounce all these names !
