Over the weekend John and I travelled down the Mangaotaki Valley to have lunch with Mark Verry, a friend of John's from Piopio Primary School days, and his wife Suzie. We hadn't been to their farm before, so after lunch went out on a drive and walk to take in the amazing views.
There are some pretty incredible landscapes in our part of the world, aren't there?
While the massive limestone cliffs along Haku Road are quite spectacular, the cloudy, white sky didn't lend itself to good photos. But features like that above ran for some distance. They're similar to what visitors see at Hairy Feet Waitomo.
Bottom line: we need to get out for lunch more often!
