My favourite photo of the week is of a log submerged in the Yarra river. It isn’t that the photo is particularly good but it evokes great memories of a book we love and a friend by the same name – Taniwha.
There’s a Taniwha in my river. People say it’s a log but I know it’s a Taniwha.
Taniwha is a beautiful book about a boy who believes in the folk-law of his culture and lets his imagination take him to wonderful places where he is given gifts as a reminder of his belief and faith. I love this review of the book.
I wish we had seen the Taniwha before we began exploring the area, I am sure that our adventures would have been more interesting had we been looking for more Taniwha! That said, we still had a fantastic day together.
