More pics

I thought I'd just post some more shots so you guys can see just how beautiful New Zealand really is. These were taken on holiday up north a few years ago, but the landscape doesn't change much.

Anyway, the first four are at Cape Reinga, which is right at the very top of the North Island.













And the other two are at Opononi, a small beachside town/village in the upper North Island. The first one, and yes, that is me, is a little statue of a dolphin which came to visit the community many, many years ago. The locals named him Opo.

I know, NZ is such a beautiful country. You should come and visit sometime.

NZ and Australia are at the top of my travel list, but so expensive, and such a distance that it's prohibitive now that I have children. I do hope it's something I can do someday. Btw, I forgot to say, I was awesome to see you in one of the pictures above. It's nice to see what people look like, even if I'll never dare to do it myself.

Very beautiful. I was lucky enough to have a one day mini tour of Auckland when our ship stopped there on the way from Melbourne (via Sydney) to America. I was all of 10-1/2 years old. Would love to go back again some day.

Thanks for sharing.

There's definitely so much more to NZ than Auckland! I live in the city :( but much prefer the rest of NZ.

Wow, that's seriously gorgeous! New Zealand is tops on my travel wishlist, but the air fare is well nigh prohibitive. *sigh*

Yeah, like me. I would love to travel to the States, but I need to do some serious saving.

Absolutely AWSOME pictures sweetie!

I had computer trouble all week at my folks because of an annoying virus. The comp was fixed yesterday so I could get on again, yet I did have access at work and at my apartment so it wasn't a *real* biggy, but still.

You look great in that picture!

sorry to hear about the computer troubles. Viruses are a pain in the ass. I'm glad you liked the pictures. Even the one of me, *sigh*
