Drawings from a Taranaki geology book

On the way home from staying at Kumeu with my brother Graeme and his wife I stayed a night with my old friend John Charteris.

We had a great tour of the Hamilton Gardens - my two favorites were the Japanese and The Maori traditional garden.

While in the city John picked up a new book on Taranki geology and below are a few drawing based on photos from the book.

  1. I simply love the Whenakura coast drawing. I spoke to Peter Kamp, one of the authors and he had an interesting and current explanation for the cliffed coasts right around the Taranaki peninsula.
