Geekman family holidays must have been rather odd

Today we drove around and looked at local power stations. (Geekman's family is strange.)

These photos are from Aratiatia, which admittedly is very picturesque.




At first I thought the black things spaced neatly along the top of the dam were some sort of fence. It wasn't until one honked loudly and flew away that I realised they were swans.

Cool! Swans!

Cool place. Sure they weren't Canada geese?

Woah. Traveling around looking at power stations? Is Geekman secretly part of my family?

Not unless their necks had got longer and bendier! It's not so obvious in this photo, but I got some close-up pictures that quite clearly showed them as (Australian) swans.

try doing this through all of the hydro stuff in the south island... for a couple of days...

some of the dams are pretty cool, but once you've seen 3...

my dad's an engineer though (so at least it makes sense!)
