After arriving in New Zealand last night, our first day sets the tone for things to come. Te Waihou Walkway and Blue Spring is a 45 minute drive from my cousin’s house in Morrinsville.
The short walkway leads us along a creek with water more blue than the sea. Blue Spring looks shallow but is actually deep. The green plants look like tall trees that sway in the currents below the water. It’s mesmerising. At a constant 11’C it would make an incredible place to cool down in summer (though swimming is prohibited at the actual Blue Spring).
