Fun fact: These dams produce 15% of New Zealands hydro
A few pictures from our drive:
|There are supposed to be so many sheep in NZ but so far I think we've seen way more cows!|
|Our first view of Mt. Reapehu and Mt. Ngauruhoe (aka Mt. Doom) in the distance - can you make it out?|
|Beautiful rolling hills|
We found Hobbiton! Or close to it anyway. The info centre in Matamata looked pretty good to us and it was free - we may not have to go to Hobbiton anymore ;)
|A gift from our Auckland neighbour - apple cucumbers. Yum!|
And woke up the next morning to enjoy my morning coffee with this view!
