This is a picture of some very big branches on a very big tree. Unfortunately, the stunningly beautiful blonde goddess in the foreground may make it difficult to concentrate on the botanical wonder… click pics to enlarge.
Some of the fings wot i done on me ‘oliday:
Went on a friend’s smallish boat all around Tauranga Harbour and a short way up the coast.And sustained some colourful bruises when our gallant captain didn’t slow down as two much bigger motor launches passed by. Double bow waves at speed -ouch! But great fun.We threw the anchor over in a pretty spot and had coffee and marshmallow Easter eggs (?!) for elevenses! Cruised the creek which is popular with water skiers. And is also popular with amorous sharks! Gaped at the squillion $$$ palaces built in spots that, in my youth, were out-of-the-way weekend hideaways. Drummed our fingers in frustration as we sat, grid-locked in traffic. More than once! Got lost on once-familiar streets. More than once! Upset some people when I said that Auckland’s Sky Towerlooks like a hypodermic needle. Quaffed copious quantities of vino and coffee.Laughed a lot. Reminisced a lot.Shed the odd tear.
