Redwood Forest

Thursday 14th October

Us 3 girls went out to Tiki Tiki reserve in the forest and on the way called into see the Redwood Forest, they are really beautiful. Most of the forest has been cleared and they are putting it into farming, I hope they don’t touch the Redwoods. The weather is still not nice, cold, wet and very windy, had to put off my trip to Tauranga due to the weather, so most days of late have been spent catching up with long time friend’s in Tokoroa and in the district.

Redwoods, Kinleith Forest Tokoroa Redwoods, Kinleith Forest, Tokoroa. The next day went for a hot swim at the Waikiti Valley, nice drive, lovely natural mineral baths and a very nice meal afterwards. A few days have passed and by the 18th October the weather picked up enough for me to go over to Tauranga, had a great day catching up with another friend, spent the day with her and got back to Tokoroa at 5 pm. This the last leg of this holiday, it has gone real fast and I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.
