    I want MORE!

    Why do we all stay in the Northern hemisphere for winter, when we could go to Newzealand and have two summers?

    Did “Baby Thunder” visit Lake George New York a few years back? Sure looks familiar.

    Wearing shorts? That’s why I’m glad I live in Texas.?

    I have visited New Zealand a few times and found it to be a most beautiful place with the most friendly people. What is the name of the lake in the header shot, North or South Island ?

      Tim – Lake Rotoiti in the Nelson Lakes National Park is located (I think) on the north island. – Texx

    I know it’s not New Zealand but I sold a Chris 16′ Riviera to a fellow in Sydney back in the 80’s and no has seen it since. Since they can’t find it there, I wonder if it might have made it’s way to New Zealand ??

    It’s funny that our normal finger docks only seem to be common in North America.

      in a couple of the pictures I think they must have thought. “docks, we don’t need no bloody docks”
