1, 2 & 3Jan08 Stratford

After spending New Years Eve up on Mt Taranaki in the carpark of the Mountain Lodge we decided that we would spend the next two nights in Stratford.We found a small motor camp right in the heart of Stratford that alongside a park through which ran a small river. The river was mentioned as fishable (trout) and evidence of this could be seen by the pieces of fishing line caught up in the trees overhanging the river.The park offered a wide variety of areas from dense open spaces.From many parts of the park Mt Taranaki could be seen.Stratford itself is well known for its Glockenspiel, see the tower in the far ground.Many people gathered at the published times to watch the action and hear the play.On the 3rd it was time to leave Stratford and the ever present Mt Taranaki and start the journey north along the Forgotton Highway.
