Well, when we went up to the Wairarapa with my parents, I thought it was the perfect opportunity (i.e. having a car) to see some of these beautiful places. A while back my friend Carolyn showed me some awesome photos that she'd taken while visiting the Putangirua Pinnacles, so after our little tour of Martinborough and Greytown, that's where we went. The weather couldn't have been better for it. So be prepared for a lot of photos of rocks and scenery - don't say I didn't warn you!
Pretty amazing, huh? Are you starting to understand why they're called the Pinnacles?
For some reason, the tower-like pinnacle reminds me of Hogwarts - does anyone else see it? No? Just me, okay then.
At this point I felt like I was walking into Jurassic Park, and kind of half expected to see a brontosaurus munching away at a nearby bush. Overactive imagination? Moi?
I think these rock formations are a result of extremely rapid erosion, and are possibly a result of the global flood.
Family photo times :)
Yes, I did all that walking in a dress and pearl necklace.
So if you're ever in the area, it's definitely worth a look.
Until next time :)
