I did not realize that there was such a thing as a temperate rainforest. This one surrounds the Pancake Rocks. No surprise, you can get to be 47 and still not know much about anything.
Geology is another area of information deficits! I wanted to pick up a book on NZ geology, but the price tag scared me.
BTW, my new "system" is to put the pictures in first (so that they are below), and then run the text (so that it appears above). That way you can read about what is to follow.
