Walking the Waikato River was cows, cows and more cows, did think about giving up milk as this is the time of year all the calf’s are separated from their moody mothers. Not to mention the bully bulls looking at you like they are going to eat you. Just have to remember Waikato is farm land and the rolling hills beautifully deep green grass with the river running through and lots of spring flowers in bloom does make for a pleasant walk when not worrying about the moo’s. The stark contrast of the brutalist architecture of the 70’s Huntly power station against it surroundings was very in your face, interesting. Looking forward to a rest and going to Hobbit land.
