Waingongoro River dam

These photos are of the old dam site at Normanby. The dam produced electricity from 1903 to 1967 until flooding damaged the station. Nowadays, it's used for dam-dropping fun in the summertime.

What a nice place! It is always soothing to be near running water. Believe me, two weekend ago we camped near a river and I felt so happy. Being from a rainy and humid place, I needed that.

What a lovely spot! I particularly like that first photo.

I know that here in the States some of our aged damns are being removed...especially in areas where there might be a threatened fish species.

Thank you for joining us for Photo Friday again this week!

Beautiful photos of a gorgeous landscape, and the dam doesn't detract from it at all. Lovely post!
