Driving to our grandson’s wedding, we fled up the country as the roads were closed  behind us by snow, slips and ice.  A day later and we wouldn’t have made it.  The storm hit with a vengeance the following day, and we wondered how it would be for the wedding.  About an hour or so before the ceremony there was a rainbow, and by the time we gathered the rain had stopped.

Coming home the sky was clear and blue, and the roads opened ahead of us.  The mountains were beautiful in the sun.  So blessed.

Ngauruhoe, Tongariro and Ruapehu are the volcanoes of the Central Plateau, beloved in Maori legend.

  2. Congratulations to your grandson and his new wife! A beautiful day filled with love, rainbows and spectacular scenery. Such a beautiful country, your New Zealand!

    Your photos and poetry in your recent posts remind me that our own autumn will be here in 2 months. We are in the dry season of summer now, with much yet to come in from garden, tree and vineyard. The time passes quickly, too quickly. It won’t be long before you are in spring in your part of the world.

    All the best to you, Rod and Bert. 🙂
