New Zealand Scenery 1979

I visited New Zealand’s North Island  in Summer of 1979. The weather was  warm and pleasant and the scenery there is awsome. I hitched around for a week  and was picked up by many friendly people and I have always appreciated their  kindness. I had a lift with 2 retired farmers who stopped at some wonderful  places and they waited till I took photos and shared their sandwiches and thermos of tea with me. I got a lift with a milkman who stopped and opened up the fridge and gave me a carton of milk. I got a lift with a farmer who when he dropped me off told me to visit his brother who would put me up. I  walked down quiet county town streets and people stopped and said hello. I  wonder if its still the same there now.

Rotarua has hot springs and geysers that were something I had never imagined. Here mud bubbles away making Op Art patterns like a slide projection backdrop at a Greatful Dead concert.

New Zealand Coastline Raglan 1979. The coast was quiet and peacful and the beaches beautiful and unspoilt.  We sure  could learn from them.
