This (above) has to be my favourite image of the New Zealand I saw this time..
New Zealand country. We were driving through the Wairarapa. They have not had rain in a while and it shows. Many of the dairy farmers are irrigating. I am in two minds about irrigation of fields to feed overstocked farms and Dairy is even bigger business in New Zealand now. It is a bit hard on the land and the rivers. Living WITH the land and the rivers is a very different thing from feeding OFF the lands and emptying the rivers.
Having said that, we all had an excellent swim in the river, yesterday!
River slime and all…
My friends are crazy! I love that.
The New Zealand landscape has the rolls and angles of a beautiful robust woman.
And so the journey continues.
I hope you all have a lovely day.
