Mt. Aubrey

Yesterday, Doug and I walked over Mt Aubrey.  It is next to Mt. Manaia which we climbed in February.  We were very lucky as rain was forecast and arrived just as we returned to the car.  It took us just under 2 hours walking from the carpark along the Reotahi walkway then up and over Mt. Aubrey to Tiller Park and back along the road to our starting point.

                                          Looking across at Mt. Manaia

We were not having Christmas presents (I had already been given a new camera among other things) but on Christmas Eve Doug decided to make me a box to have by the front door.  Previously I had a basket full of all sorts of bits and pieces including a knife, secateurs etc.  This is now out of sight in my lovely "rustic box"

He "knocked it up" in a day.  


  1. Looks a lovely walk with some delightful vistas - Doug is definitely a handy fellow, it is a great tool box.

  2. Yes, it was a good walk and got my heart pumping. Yes, Doug is a handy fellow - he tells me he made the box in an afternoon.

  3. Lovely walk, and a super box, love the inside lift out part, and what a great guy, in an afternoon?? I can see a great demand for more of those. Cheers, Jean.

  4. Lovely walk and great box. Clever Doug.
