I love living in a country where dirt roads are a normal part of the scenery.
This guy got out of the pasture (we assume, since he was laying down with the steers on the
other side of the fence), so Hubby opened the gate and we shooed him back in.
If he didn't belong there, then I guess the farmers will be surprised!
These are some shots out the car window. Taranaki stays green all year, unlike the rest of the country that turns brown in the summer
I posted about Tunnel Beach a while back but didn't tell you anything about it. The 80-meter (about 260 feet) tunnel was dug to allow stock access to the beach for shipping.
It was hand-dug through sandstone by John Scott, Charles Christofferson and Albert Perrett, working for the Public Works Department, with picks and shovels. It was made big enough for 'the largest horned beast' and tall enough to accommodate a tall horseman. It was finished in 1911.
This is a dug-out passage, part of the road to the Tunnel Beach.
