roadside scenery



Another lunch 'watcher'!


Today it is unoccupied because it is not earthquake proof, but this lovely building was, at one time, a bath house and then a museum. Click here for it's history.

The city of Thames has a gold mining history.

Some truly delightful images here toady - the wee churches are such a contrast to the Rotorua Museum! What a magnificent building it is though... YAM xx

You found two cute, little churches. The Bath House is spectacular looking. You have been having too much fun with your camera, but I recommend keeping it up.

Stop by Yogi. There some amazing pictures. On the St Mary does it say American church? If you fine the time stop in for a cup of coffee

These churches are so little - does that mean also small towns? A pity that a big beautiful building stand unoccupied, but probably no funds to make it earthquake proof? Can't remember how long you live now in New Zealand - hope you have gotten accustomed to the way they celebrate Easter where you live (if not, it will happen one year:):) ). Enjoy your week and thank you muchfor these views with All Seasons!

An interesting post. St. Mary's looks so pristine in contrast to the rusty fence.
