it was cloudy when we arrived in auckland on sunday and it was even more cloudy yesterday
so, what better thing to do in the rain than visit your local rainforest
it’s quite an amazing sight. not that we could see much of it
over the precipice all we could see was more clouds
but as we stood there, almost like a miracle of healing of our vision, the clouds softened
and for a few moments we could see more of the rainforest as it rolls down the mountain in to the sea
we’ll definitely be going back here as it’s quite amazing
and, like new zealand itself, you can read all about it in guide books (or in this case the visitors centre), but it’s only when you throw yourself in to it in person that you get a feel for what it’s really like
and we’re impressed !
shame about the rain though !
