webs they use to catch insects.
Then it was off to Rotorua another amazing place that is on top of volcanic hot springs. Of course it doesn't smell all that pretty (sulfur smell of rotten eggs) but after a while you really don't notice.
The water is hot and smelly, you can see a geyser in the background. It doesn't stop the wild life from enjoying the warm water.
We visited Rainbow Springs and had a wonderful time. We basically had the entire park to ourselves at night time when they allow you in to see the Kiwi's looking for food (they hunt at night) What a delightful time we had with them.
I got to pet this one. The kiwi's are endangered because they cannot fly, leaving them vulnerable to cats, dogs and any other critter that would eat them. The park was lit up like a Fairy Tale at night.
It was just beautiful and something I would recommend to anyone visiting NZ. We went back the next day to yet another adventure...I even took part in a bird show LOL hey don't laugh, I won a Kiwi for my participation. WE also went for a boat ride that ended with Rainer and I going over the edge.
