Where my mum went


This is where my mum was on holiday. It is called Lake Taupo and is in the middle of the north island in New Zealand (yes our two main islands are called the north island and south island!!).

These are some mountains nearby, as it is a very volcanic area, the lake being an old crater. It has lots of trout in the lake, and is a great area for tramping, cycling and having adventures.

Don't let the blue skies fool you, it was icy cold this morning, and snow had fallen overnight on the hills just outside town.

My kitty spa isn't quite as scenic.

So it was a cold, beautiful, tropical island near a volcano? It looks gorgeous!

Mom's favorite movie is Lord of the Rings and she enjoyed the bonus features on the extended DVD's almost as much as the movie because they showed so much of the many diverse areas and types of landscapes that New Zealand has. It's just breathtaking.

Beautiful area. Doesn't look cold. But looks can be deceiving.

I hope you are doing well at your Kitty Spa, do they massage you and give you facials?
