Traffic was moving pretty slowly along the Coastal Highway by the time we left Wellington, so this photo of Kapiti Island was pretty easy to take...
...as was this cute little church in Turakina...
...but three hours into the road trip my husband wasn't as keen to indulge me and my requests to stop and take scenic photos, so you get a shot of the Whanganui River at dusk taken from a moving car. Sweet.
Gran's Mountain, as my children call it. Yes, yes it is. Just hers. It didn't want to reveal all of itself while we were there, but it's still beautiful.
Springtime in a little piece of paradise.
Random signs and sights; the Kiwi sense of humour is alive and well:

|Jandal fence near Foxton|
And home again with our hearts full and our wallets empty.
