Patea Dam boat launch

The journey to the dam is always interesting with the wildlife and scenery 
along the winding dirt roads. I include this map so you can see how far
from the ocean it is among the hills of South Taranaki.

The thing I find most interesting is the parking lot/boat launch at the dam.

It is covered with seashells! When I google about the shells, the first entry is my 2015 
post on the same place, but no other discussion of them. I guess the volcanic activity 
on the north island has something to do with it. But it still boggles my mind!

I imagine I will always be excited when we visit this place :)

roadside shots

We went for a drive yesterday afternoon to Patea Dam and saw some delightful things!
There were some showers that brought interesting ambiance, too.

it's looking like spring

The magnolia looks so awesome against the blue sky, always better in
person than photos.

A lovely rhododendron of some sort.

I found some little crocuses blooming in one of the many, many
containers around the garden.

Even the moss growing on the garden wall looks great.
