Our mini trip - day 1

The road trip! We left Wellington pretty early in the morning after picking up our rental car. The skies weren't looking very nice over Kapiti Island when we drove along the coast...

But quickly the day cleared up. We drove through the countryside for a while, which is so green! And of course, full of sheep.

We came to Taihape, where they have an annual gumboot (rain boots) throwing contest. I think that would be so fun to watch, so I'll have to talk Ryan into going sometime. Ha, it's only 3 hours away...

We reached Mt Ruapehu, which is almost half way and took a picture with the mountain. We haven't had much luck driving through, it always seems to be hiding behind clouds. One of these days we will get it!

And I stopped taking pictures of our road trip here apparently. It was about a 9 hour drive up to the Coromandel, and we didnt' arrive until late. It was an adventure navigating with poor maps and very windy roads. Anyway, check back, I'll share more soon!
