..a hike through the Manawatu Gorge.. 3 hours with a lot of uphill to get to the Lookout (Frank kept asking “are we there yet?”) …

Asa was my walking companion, and either I’d be pulling him along, or it would reverse and he’d be waiting for me…with this look! A real “Kiwi”.

…aw, a chance to rest at the Lookout, and the thrill of knowing we were half way done..

We came across this sculpture of Whatonga..about 18 feet high! there was a picnic bench near by, where we had our lunch..

The hike back was downhill. The day was our “rest up” day, and though it exhausted us, it was also so refreshing.
