The kiwi gumboot fence


Road trip today! It was one of those Sundays where the weather was dismal and it was well worth getting outdoors instead of being stuck inside...so we decided to drive to Opotiki and on the way we spied this fence near the White Pine Forest in Awakeri.


It was covered in peoples donated gumboots, some old and some new. I had said before we left that I needed to get myself a new pair of boots as we quite often end up in places where it's muddy or wet, today I joked that this looked like just the place to get a pair.


Besides, they would've been perfect for today's rainy stormy winter weather...

Linking up with Our World Tuesday :-)

  1. The mind boggles as to why? But saying that I pass through a town in the UK where they used children's wellies (gum boots) as flower pots and they have been nailed to a fence

  4. You just have to wonder, how many critters make their home in these boots?

  7. Hmm. I haven't been that far towards East Cape. Shouldn't they have mounted them upside down?

  8. Quite odd. Here they're called rubber boots.
