Three Sisters

The drive back to Auckland from New Plymouth is 5+ hours so we decided to stop along the way to get out and stretch our legs. It was low tide, so we had an opportunity to explore the caves around Three Sisters.  An amazing place!

From Wikipedia: Tongaporutu is a settlement in northern Taranaki, in the North Island of New Zealand. It is located on State Highway 3 at the mouth of the Tongaporutu River, 15 kilometres south of Mokau.Tongaporutu is well known in New Zealand for its 'Three Sisters' rock formations and its Maori petroglyphs carved into cave rock walls. However,both the Maori rock carvings and the 'Three Sisters formations are constantly being eroded by the Tasman sea.

When we got to Hamilton we stopped again to do a session at the Temple.  It felt good to quiet our minds and reflect on all we have been learning and experiencing these past few months.  Whenever we get an opportunity to spend time  in the temple we feel closer to Heavenly Father and the Savior.  Feeling very blessed.
