Pics Of New Zealand
On the east coast (Pacific Ocean) - seashells everywhere!

The windy, cold, west coast (Tasman Sea)
View of Downtown from the Harbour Bridge
A jumper ready to jump from the observation deck of the SkyTower, a 192m leap, fall for approx. 14 seconds at around 85kph!
Matt & I standing on glass floor 192m above the ground.
With a Maori warrior at a cultural performance we went to see at the museum.
The ferry we went on that crosses the Auckland Harbour (from the pacific Ocean) to Devonport (another peninsula)

My Aunt and Uncle's house and their gardens still flowering in the winter!
