NZ Photo Thread
 
Hi All

Inspired by Sky's Fabulous photos I thought it would be really good to start a thread for just everyday pics of NZ. I have looked at the photo post and it appears that they are just associated with Usernames and cannot be added to by all and sundry. Please correct me if I am wrong. This thread should therefore be just for photos and one line descriptions.

To start off here is a picture of the UK (sorry I haven't been to NZ yet) after the freedom of information act.

At the center is the extinct volcano of Mt. Taranaki. The mountain was originally named Mt. Egmont by Captain Cook.

Taken at Waihi Beach Airfield, 11 April, 1996
This old plane now provides interesting surroundings for a very nice meal.(the air field cafe)
This image shows the starboard side - the steps are a fire-exit. The side cargo door serves as the main entrance, and a covered area of tables is provided beneath the port wing. (Quite nifty really). Inside the aircraft 38 people can be seated - there is a bar in the nose

I found these pics of the Tasman region on a website. I wouldn't mind being there now; I'd love to be lazing on the beach with a few cocktails and beers nearby!!!!!!

Now this site has made me really homesick so I thought I would share with you one of the things I miss most about Christchurch in The Spring time.
Nothing more beautiful than the daffodils around the city.........
By the way Id love it if someone could tell me how to attach photos so they come up bigger rather than just thumbnails :D
