We have been enjoying the journey, and on return to New Zealand I took Alana to visit Tane Mahuta who is our god of the forest, and so deeply rooted in local mythology.
It was confirming of our links and her initial impressions will keep this mighty tree forever in her memories also now. How appropriate for this experience to be inspiration for some of our first writing together.....

what does the name, Tane Mahuta mean?

It's the 'God of the Forest' Dave. However, Tane can be translated as man (Generalized). and Mahuta is sort of 'Giant', but I am not well enough versed in Te Reo (the language of the people) to be able to attempt a more definative translation. See later log entry for more info!!
