Nary a stitch was sewn although I carried my current project both ways!
But in the interests of recording this event I did photograph a few "items" that I have termed road art
Further north is an even smaller town with the exciting name of National Park Village. At 2287 metres above sea level the sole reason for its existence is the ski lodges and the turn in the road leading to three volcanos where kiwis (that is, we New Zealanders) go skiing. Petrified wood forms this sculpture of our Kiwi.
The next shot is not really road art and is well known among New Zealanders because one of our painters Peter MacIntyre had a holiday home near there and painted many pictures of this scene.
Some time on the road and further north again is Te Kuiti - world famous in New Zealand for shearing. With the number of sheep on the large land holdings around the town there is obviously plenty of practice available for would-be record holders. This town has a shearing comb as its symbol.
- I'm grateful for safe travel on congested roads on a busy public holiday
- I'm grateful to live in such a beautiful land
- I'm grateful to plumbers who work on public holidays!!
