WINTER SURF TRIP June 16, 2015 in New Zealand A surf board purchase called for a road trip to Rotorua (to pick it up!) and a surf trip in Raglan. Misty Rotorua. Rotorua Market gems. While perusing the markets, a stranger asked Scott to take her dog, "Prince Albert" on a walk while she manned her table. This is the kind of thing that happens in New Zealand. Where we woke up on Day 3. View from my van. Note the tiny specks of surfers.
