Taranaki Landscape

Driving down, last Friday, the beautiful coast road from
Awakino to New Plymouth, as I often do, I saw,
and noticed, probably for the seventh or eighth time
this uptorn root system.
On this occasion, although I was very anxious to get
home and had already driven past it, I
stopped the car, turned around and went
back. It took some willpower, but I’m glad
otherwise I wouldn’t be writing this post.
Notice the remains of a pa site on the hill in the background.
Time is softening the look of these sites.
