This coming Thursday is September the 1st, and that will officially be our first day of spring.
I can't wait! For the last two weeks we've already been having very springlike weather, sunny, warm(ish) and calm.
For our walk today Manu LeGrand and I wandered around the old goldmine battery in the Karangahake Gorge. There are walkways and bike tracks, the skeletons of the old buildings, and rusty old machinery lying everywhere. Click to enlarge and get a better look!

I really hope none of you have been affected by Hurricane Irene - fingers crossed!
