Western Springs – a spring fed freshwater lake which was the source of Auckland’s first reticulated bulk water supply back in 1877. The water comes up through the volcanic rocks.
I had a 40 minute leisurely walk around Western Springs Park today; stopping frequently to check out the waterfowl. The only thing that prevented me from getting into the lake with the birds was the leash linking me to my human. There were also eels and fish in there. Perhpas next time I'll get to go for a swim with them.

Welcome to my blog. My name is Riley and I am a seven year old male Golden Retriever living in New Zealand. I got my name from the Irish saying "Living the life of Riley" as my family want me to have an easy, happy and good life.
At the end of February 2011 they added Enzo to our pack to make life more fun!
