My first attempt at a little planet. I used my landscape shot of Auckland.
Before we proceeded to Whangarei Falls, we stopped by the historic Puhoi Village. Although very near to Auckland, being in Puhoi makes you feel that you are in a different time period. It’s a quiet, serene town along a lake. They have a small although a very full and very nice library. We even chatted with their friendly librarian. Time moves so slow here. We love it! After having mussels and chips for lunch, we headed on our way.
It’s our second time here and definitely won’t be our last.
Yesterday, our friends and I went on a road trip north. Sadly, the weather was not cooperating. When we arrived at the falls, it was raining again and my camera got drenched. Happily, after 5pm, the skies cleared up again. Here’s a photo of the falls from one of the lookout points.
