The Mighty Waikato River…

One of the things I love about the location of our house is that we overlook the Waikato River. We are near the source of the river which is Lake Taupo. Our house is located at the top of cliff overlooking an area which we call “The Lagoon”, that is accessed via Pois Road. The Lagoon is a favourite swimming, kayaking and fishing spot.


This morning we could hear chatter and laughter floating up from the Lagoon. We looked down to see a crowd of people forming a flotilla.

Every kind of floating equipment you could think of – from pool noodles and old tyre inners

Tyre inners and noodles

to dolphins…….



and arm chairs….


After much chatter they were on their way:


A super way to keep cool on a hot sunny day.

Bye for now.


  1. Your weather is looking gorgeous and the water does look inviting. I do hope it remains so in two weeks when we head to Acacia Bay for our holiday.

  2. Wow...that looks like a very cool thing to do (pun intended) The people riding dolphins cracked me up.

  3. Oh Linda, that looks like SO much fun!! I agree with Shay... the dolphins are hilarious and oh so fun! :) Wonderful warm visions when it is -15C here in Cleveland, OH usa.
    I think the ultimate "snowbird" would be to be up here during the usa summer and down there with you in the usa winter. Sweet!!!


I love hearing from you - write now!
