2010: In and around Rotorua
February 14 - March
This time we had
arranged to meet our friends Peter and Bernardine on the Blue Lake Campground
just outside in Rotorua to jointly explore some of the sights we skipped the
first time we visited the North Island in 2006.
mud pools, gurgling springs, sulphurous streams, the Government Gardens with
the Maori carvings at its entrance. the Tudor-style Bath House and the odd
find like the W. Canadian totem pole and the really nice bronze "Waitukei"
From the Government
Gardens a very nice walkway leads along the shore of Lake Rotorua (an old
crater lake) with Black Swans to Kuirau Park with its sulphurous steam and
bubbling mud pots.
