Rā 31, Rātu 31 o Kohitātea 2017

Back to work! I love long weekends, that extra day makes all the difference especially when you get away somewhere and escape!

I had a great session working with a group of teachers today, though. Lots of good conversations and hopefully they gained plenty from it to move forwards.

Dropped my hire car off in town and walked back home along the river to get some fresh air and stretch my legs.  Interesting to compare the rail bridge and the road bridge – different eras, different materials.

An early start to the day so that I could take an hour or so at lunchtime and make the most of being on the road.  So instead of a morning run round the lake in the Tron I had a lunchtime run around the ‘windows’ at Karangahake Gorge.  The way that nature has reclaimed it’s place from the industry and technology of the 19th century just fascinates me.  It is a stunning landscape and a reminder of the temporary nature of man’s impact on the environment.
