New Zealand, Mt. Maunganui

Dear Family and Friends,

Chuck and I walked from the ship, around the mountain (pictured below) and around the town of Mt. Maunganui.  It was about 2.5 - 3 miles all total.  A very pleasant way to enjoy the beautiful weather and scenery.

The statue below looks to be an indigenous Maori fishing with a spear. The Maori originated from Polynesia and were the original inhabitants of New Zealand.

There was a nice walkway all around the island.

After  circumnavigating the mountain, we walked through the town. The residents of this place sure have a sense of humor. I really enjoyed the reader board signs they had in front of their businesses.

We had some terrific fish and chips for lunch. It was a fun day.
