……..This Scepter'd Isle
This royal throne of kings, this scepter'd isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall,
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England
From Richard II, Act 2 (Shakespeare)
We arrived back in New Zealand on Saturday. We had the best of times, puttering around England at our own pace. Stopping where and when we wanted to. So many happy memories. Our home and cats have been looked after marvellously by our House sitters.
As much as we enjoyed our travels it is nice to be back in Taupo,Godzone.
Go the All Blacks!

When you pass through the centre you can elect to walk to the Stones or catch a bus. We choose the latter. The buses run about every 5 minutes. The roads are beige as are the buses so they blend in with the surroundings.
The visitors centre is very sharp, with lots of information available. Including this mock up of how experts think the stones were moved.
