lake mangamahoe

Even though I thoroughly enjoy my solitude at our house, Hubby makes sure that I get out
and about on the weekends. This weekend he took me to Lake Mangamahoe, outside
of New Plymouth. It's been a favorite of mine since the first time he took me there.

Apparently, it's too cold in Canada for the Canadian geese!

These are beautiful 'beaktraits'! Canada Geese, though, only migrate between 1500 and 3000 miles; they were introduced to NZ as game birds at the start of last century. Pretty much everywhere in the world they are an agricultural pest. Think rabbits with feathers! They are handsome though, no question!

I saw Canadian geese in our town for the first time last Monday. I was so surprised. Someone told us that we're on those geese's migratory pattern. We're a pit stop! I love that. :-) Great photos. All those ducklings, so cute.
