nz holiday photo story 10 - final

last day in hamilton. with a few hours to spare before returning to auckland, we went to the memorial park, the park was created in memory of the first and second world war soldiers, including a spitfire air-force memorial.
a replica of a spitfire plane

next to the park is the waikato river which is popular for peddlers.

we spend a short photo snapping time at lake rotoroa before our long drive up to auckland.

on our last day in new zealand, cousin took us to have a view of the tasman sea, the sea that separates australia and new zealand. it was drizzling along the way to muriwai. autumn was finally settling in.

at takapu refuge, there were gannets, hundreds of them. they migrate between australia and new zealand. we enjoyed watching the birds and their young squawking and flying over the sea. and we too are hoping and praying that we will be successful in our migration to new zealand. and so our story continues.

i hope you have enjoyed the photos. there will be random others in coming posts, you didn't think i've posted all of them did you? i'll end this nz holiday series with a video i recorded at the memorial park. we were fortunate to be there when the band played. loved it


  1. Wish you all the best in your migration process. Meanwhile just take a rest like the gannets in your picture, preparing yourself for the journey ahead ;)
