Wellington Anniversary Weekend...1

On Wellington Anniversary weekend we decided to add an extra day and have a couple of nights in Taupo, followed by a night in Napier. Here are the first of a series of photos.
It's not often one sees Ruapehu this clearly from Stormy Point.

A group of six Can-Am Spyders was stopped at Taihape when we stopped for lunch.

I stood in front of our motel in Taupo, with camera, to see what was going past.
I saw this AMC Javelin from a distance, hence the blurry shot.

MGB GT passing....

...and a Fendt tractor !

Nice VW Type 2 camper.
The price of a good one of these is huge now.

Robinson R44 leaves with another load of joy-riders, just north of Taupo.

Big Scania with aerodynamic coach work is only 4 months old.

2014 Kenworth T409 at Taupo.

Nearby was this 2015 Volvo FH with 540hp of the company's 12.8 litre six.

While I was taking photos this Kenworth K200 returned from having a wash.
According to the driver it has been on the road since November 2018 and has already had a replacement engine.
