Trip with Parents, Part One:

So this is the first post about the trip I had with my parents back in April when they came over to New Zealand.  Sorry this is so late, kinda forgot about the blog.  XD

First off we went to the Auckland Zoo.  There we got to see Kiwi birds up close, and they are far larger than I thought they would be!  They reminded me of chickens with really weird beaks.  I don't have any good pictures of them because they are nocturnal and their exhibit was very dark.  There were tons of other animals around as well.

The next day in Auckland we went to an aquarium, where we got to see penguins and loads of marine life.  There was a really cool part where we got to stand right next to this huge sting ray, was really cool to see just how big they are.  After that we went to a place around an hour out from Auckland on the seacoast.  There we took a quick hike out into the forest to see an amazing waterfall.  After that my father and I climbed up a rock structure that was on the beach, called Lion's Rock.  Had a great view from about halfway up, as far as was permitted.

I'll cover more of the trip in the next post.  Breaking it up mainly because of the number of pictures I have, I don't want to upload too many on one post.  These aren't all of my picture, but don't want to overload the blog too much.  These are some of my best, enjoy!
