My friends brought me here to see the scenery, they said it is the most beautifull beach they have near them. I agree! There’s just sonething about the ocean that makes you feel so calm and at peace. 😊
Mount Taranaki is a dormant volcano, also known as Mount Egmont. Because its shape is a very symmetrical cone, and it looks like Mount Fuji in Japan, it is called the Mt. Fuji in the southern hemisphere. The film "The Last Samurai" used to take pictures here and pretend to be Mount Fuji.
One of the good places to watch the mountain is called Te Rewa Rewa Bridge. Another name for this bridge is: White Bridge. Shaped like a fishbone, it is in a straight line with Mount Taranaki. Standing at one end of the bridge, you can see the snow-capped mountains through the bridge. The design is very clever.
This is still the starting point of a 7km coastal walkway. I didn't go because of the time, but I heard a passing old lady telling me that this trail can see both the sea and the new Plymouth city. Today's weather is not the best weather to watch the snowy mountains. The mountains are always hazy, and the southern hemisphere's Mount Fuji is not willing to reveal its true colors. So I was on this bridge for an hour, and finally I hoped to see the snow-capped mountains.
is the old lady mentioned earlier. I walked back and saw that I was still waiting here. I boasted that I was patient. So we talked about it. She came to New Zealand for two years because the beauty here has been left. Chatting and talking about the snow-capped mountains, the kind of spectacle is not expressible by the photos. After a while, the sun was slanting and the sun was getting better. At that moment, I really hope that I can stay here too.
