Another installment of my trip to see Josh’s Grandmother!
After dinner at Josh’s Grandma’s house, Josh, Viv (my MIL), and I decided to take a walk around the neighborhood. Grandma told us that there was a park nearby so we set out to find it. I took my camera in tow, of course. We started down the street and immediately I had to take a picture. How beautiful is this street all lined with pretty trees? I love how quaint and adorable most towns are here in New Zealand. I also noticed that a lot of people keep really great gardens or landscape their places in some way which makes it even nicer to look at. I enjoyed looking at all the houses. My favourite was looking at all the lemon trees. It seems that you’re not a New Zealander unless you have a lemon tree. Josh’s mom even has her own lemon trees.
We finally got to the little park. It was adorable and had a little bridge and a pond. It was a bit annoying since we came from the wrong way and we had to walk all the way to the end of the park so we could get to the part where we could cross the bridge but it was worth it.
I love weeping willow trees and around this park there were some of the biggest weeping willows I’ve ever seen. They were absolutely beautiful. I think weeping willows are so graceful and peaceful and I wished I had a book with me so I could sit under it and read. It just looked like that was what it was there for.
Have you ever noticed how there is always a goose in every group of ducks you see? This little fella was no exception. You can’t see the ducks in this picture but there was a large group of them. Do you think maybe these are the geese that get kicked out and outcast from being a goose that they decide to go and be the big man among the ducks? That’s what Josh and I decided.
I hope you enjoyed our walk! I’ve got a lot more installments of my trip! I just can’t fit it all in one post! My posts may not be as exciting as Rose‘s Great Mexico Adventure Posts but I have a lot of pictures and they’re fun to share, too.
