The big slip, Te Awaoteatua stream [2]

Aotearoa's still on the move

Here's another view of the big slip near my place, after the digger had spent a while opening up the stream and generally cleaning up much of the mess.

Dam, dam, dam. (Maybe the stream wanted to make a lake...)

Looks so raw.

Zhoen, actually, I like the idea of a small lake or swamp up there. It'd be a great habitat for wildlife. Unfortunately, there's no hope for it (and the digger saw to that very quickly) — it would take out "productive pasture". In any case, it'd turn into a foetid mess because of all the runoff and effluent from the cattle.
