Family bush walk - Upper Nihotupu Dam Track

One of the last things I read yesterday was this post over at Marblemount Homestead about summer food preservation and enjoying nature. I felt a little jealous that their family gets to enjoy so much beauty and nature right where they live.

And then I thought, hang on a minute, I live at the foot of the Waitakere Ranges, with its 16,000 hectares of untainted bush. I have nothing to be jealous of.

So today the family and I went on a big beautiful bush walk - the Upper Nihotupu Dam Track. I don't know how long it's meant to take, but we were at it for a good four hours.

It was glorious.

The 50 metre tall Nihotupu Dam, built 1923. 

I thank God for my beautiful country and my even more beautiful family.

  1. I find it so funny to see other people's children dressed in the same clothes that my kids have :D. It's like my brain goes, "There's my son!" and then I'm, like, "No, that's not my son. That's someone else's child. They just have the same jumper."
