📍The blue spring The Blue Springs is only 5km North of Putaruru. Work started on the Te Waihou walkway in 1999. Over 400 students from the local schools in and around Putaruru were involved in planting trees on the Te Waihou walkway. The water feeding the Blue Springs is from the Mamaku plateau. It is only a short 13km stroll to the Mamaku plateau but it takes the water 50 to 100 years to reach the Blue Spring. The 11 Degrees Celsius water flows at a rate of 9,240 gallons per minute. And as we all know, pure water is always blue.
For those who don’t know I am a hot head and Joe calms me down on a daily basis 🤪 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Bless his soul. He’s so patient with me when I can really push his buttons. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Surprisingly he has stood by side for 3 and half years & definitely deserves a metal ❤️
