Interesting Taranaki

We went for a drive to check out the surf beaches and found these surfers (the little dots). 


I will share more water photos later but now I want to share some interesting things we found...


The bright fence had Mt Taranaki painted on it along with some seagulls and Chad (the British equivalent of Kilroy).

Every summer, when we were out for a ride, we saw signs for 'keys for the pool'. Last weekend, we decided to get the whole story this time.
RDI is the local farm equipment store, pretty much the only business left on Main Street in the little town.

We found the pool and the rules for users. I'm not sure why 'pools' is plural as I only saw one through the fence.



Just down the road was this interesting house with coffee mugs covering the walls.


Even after ten years, I still find the world of NZ fascinating.

Interesting way to share a pool. The coffee mug house reminded me of going to Newfoundland where houses had lines of knitted socks hanging out front, but those were for sale. - Margy

Great photos that give an insight into the lives of the locals- the pool run on honour system, the local eccentrics.

What unique & interesting places you visited! I loved the photos - all so different than anything here (and the beach scene was lovely).

And you made me laugh - I had no idea that Brits had their own version of Kilroy named Chad! lol
