In April, 2017, I visited a small town called Ohakune. From the map, you will see that it is in New Zealand. It is a long way from two of New Zealand’s big cities – Auckland and Wellington.
Volcanos and Earthquakes
New Zealand is part of the “Ring of Fire.”
This is a line around the earth where earthquakes frequently happen. Near the town of Ohakune is an active volcano called Mount Ruapehu. The mountains around the town provide ski-ing and it is a very pretty place.
The Big Carrot and Carrot Race Car
The countryside around Ohakune has been a great place for farmers to grow vegetables. The town claims that their “Big Carrot” is the world’s largest model carrot.
There is a playground with swings right beside the big carrot and other vegetables are there with laughing faces
The Carrot’s Friends:
I like the racing car and it must run on carrot juice. We know that vegetables are good for us. It does not matter if we eat them raw in salads, or cooked on our plates or squashed in a blender.
