Update: This has now, of course disappeared and the woods have completely covered over what remained. The gallery of photos I took that day is below.

Cautionary tale: This is what happens when you don’t keep your house in good order. I might think twice before entering this place again. It won’t be long before the whole thing collapses.

The woodturning symposium in New Zealand where I was demonstrating finished on a Sunday and my flight wasn’t until Tuesday night. Thanks to the kindness of one of the attendees, Tref Roberts, I got to experience as much of the beauty of this country as was possible in one day. I had a whirlwind sightseeing tour of the area, where it was Spring time and the weather was very dramatic and changeable, which only intensified the experience on this unforgettable day. I will have a gallery of my images taken on that day and here is the first, on the shore of the beautiful North island.
