This ended up being one of the most sunny days of the whole trip – it was gorgeous. This picture was taken on state highway 47, just out of Turangi.

The road from National Park to Wanganui is extremely scenic.

This is a farming area, and the sheep in the next two photos were very audible from where we were. They were making a huge noise. I wonder how many there were? They just kept coming and heading for that one gate at the bottom right.

We arrived in Wellington in the evening, just as one of the cruise ships was leaving. We stayed with our friends up on the hills in Newlands again. The views from the house are just spectacular.
