Apr 3rd – Auckland North Island NZ

On Monday, we went for a long walk, with the Auckland Domain Park as our destination. On the way, we walked through several small parks and the University of Auckland campus.

The campus was an interesting mix of old and new buildings. The Domain park was full of odd looking trees we had never seen before. We found out from a park worker that the tree is called Pohutukawa, and is found only in NZ. It is referred to as the New Zealand Christmas tree as it is full of red blooms in December, which is early summer in NZ.
