View from Mount Maunganui - sit down and relax


A couple of weeks ago when I climbed, and I use that term recklessly because of how darn hard it was Mount Maunganui, when we were at the top looking out over the stunning landscape there were lots of other people around us too. This young lady was sitting on one side of the mountain on these stairs relaxing. I couldn't help wondering what she was thinking about? It's a perfect place to ponder life and anything else that's on your mind - can't wait to do all this again.

A friend in Hawaii was urging me to visit Tauranga when we were going to Rotorua and Waitomo. She has been visiting it a few times already, but i am not so obsessed with the beach anymore, so we pass. I prefer small hikes and mountains, but i was able to only hike the nearest hill to my sister's place, Mt Wellington. It was a very small one but very convenient, not so lovely but fine. We also enjoyed it and i enjoyed photographing too.
