More from our travels through New Zealand November 2019
The staircase in my last post, was much admired, so I thought you might like this beautiful boardwalk.
Why travel in a straight line when you can meander. This is a typical Department of Conservation path
Like the staircase, they allow the average visitors (and locals) to access places that they could never see otherwise.
Mr Uphilldowndale stopped on his meander to watch the little fish swimming in the swamp beneath his feet.
The DOC provide information boards, and suggested routes and the time needed to complete them, perfect for the travellers!
Walk across the swamp and the path leads you into the rain-forest,
it seems possible almost everywhere in New Zealand to walk through every type of environment in a few strides.
New Zealand has a fern for every occasion
To my untrained eye its difficult to know what is a fern
and what is a moss or a leaf
But I can tell you there is abundant beauty
