Rā 221  Rāhina, 8 o Here-turi-kōkā

A very frosty morning at the lake today but it was good to be able to start running in the light as the sun rose.  The sharp blue sky of Hamilton gave way to increasing cloud as I flew South. Even through the murky yellowness of the plane window Ngarahoe shone resplendent enrobed in snow. It was a bumpy old descent into Wellington but the wind roared and hissed and had blown itself and the rain away before we headed out to sample the craft beer delights of Beervana.

So today’s photos tell a story of winter weather and warming beer!

Day 159 June 7th 2016

On the road again… there’s a song in there somewhere!  On my way to sunny Hawkes Bay and Gisborne for CLA PLD days via Wellington. Flying south means flying down the west coast – snow-capped Taranaki to my right and Ruapehu and Tongariro equally majestic robed in white. 
Taranaki is just a blip on the horizon from my lofty stance but impressive.
