Back from Taupo

Just back from Taupo and the quilt symposium.  This may take several posts to cover a great week.

Left Wellington last Wednesday with a fun stop on the Desert Road

The road had been closed a day or so before.  Just a tad cold but so much fun.


Mt Ngauruhoe and Mt Tongariro

Mt Ruapehu

 Arriving in Taupo ...

The symposium started on Thursday with registration.  Great fun catching up with friends and people I hadn't seen for ages.  The merchants mall was open and a bit of shopping was done.  


Had to do the touristy thing and visit Huka Falls


View of Huka Lodge across the river. 

In the evening was the opening and awards ceremony. A later post will detail the classes and the exhibitions.
