Travel Theme: LIQUID




LAKE Karapiro

Lake Karapiro is an artificial reservoir lake on the Waikato River, 30 kilometres (19 mi) south-east of the city of Hamilton in the North Island of New Zealand. The lake was formed in the 1940’s by damming the Waikato River to store water for the 96-megawatt Karapiro hydroelectric power station.

The lake, regarded as one of New Zealand’s best rowing venues, hosted the World Rowing Championships in 1978 and the 1950 British Empire Games. The 2010 World Rowing Championships were held here.


Wellington  –  BAY

Lyall Bay is a bay and a suburb on the south side of the Rongotai isthmus in WellingtonNew Zealand.

The bay is a popular surf beach, featuring a breakwater at the eastern end. It has also been the site of surf lifesavingchampionships, and is home to two surf lifesaving clubs. Lyall Bay is a very popular and safe swimming beach.[citation needed] The beach is only two thirds of its original size; the construction of Wellington International Airporttook away the eastern third of the beach.

Pet blog hop: Trompie

Come and join the pet fun!

Kirby started a Pet Blog Hop

Trompie play!

Hi, you out there! This morning I had my usual play with my Mummy.

I have this small towel that I love.

I shake it like made just as if it is something real.

Mum takes it from me and throws it in the air

I then catch it and shake it feels so good to do it.

Mum took some photos of me and I want to share them with all of you.

This is me, ready to start the contest.

Shake it, again and again.

At the end I have to give it some tiny bites and pulls!

After 30 minutes of  shaking , jumping and running

I have to relax a bit.
