Been a funny old week – storms, travel, meetings and missed meetings – the best laid plans… We left for Auckland last Monday to spend some time with friends, and also to call in on our daughter in the Bay of Plenty on the way home. We left early in the morning and drove through the Paraparas in fog and mist. Spectacular.
sunlight through tears
So much happened, and so many photos. I’ll share the journey with you in my next posts. Thought that last photo was appropriate for Easter…
Bert came across a whole new kind of animal when we stopped at Matahiwi for a cuppa yesterday. He couldn’t believe his eyes. These little part kunekune pigs happily charge around the local community looking for handouts. They are perfectly safe from being eaten as they keep the visitors happy. The cafeteria is in the old Matahiwi School and I recommend it as a great and friendly place to stop.
onto a good thing
And I just had to share these photos of Bert enjoying his holiday at the Country Retreat Kennels…
…all photos courtesy of the wonderful Gavin. Click on any photo to enlarge. And in case you are wondering, Bert is the wee black Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
Sorry there’s been nothing happening on my blog lately – we’ve been on the road again, and making plans for another story from Fearless Fred.
Sorry folks, flat out at the moment, so here are some shots from our recent travels through the Waikato…
around the harbour
and the wind blows
whitecaps across the water
our road runs over those hills
and I am anxious to leave
before more snow falls
from the heavy clouds
I am too soft now
for these southern climes
Do not fret because of evildoers. Do not envy the wicked; for the evil have no future; the lamp of the wicked will go out.
Then at last people will be able to live in peace…
Sorry, I’m a bit behind. Hope to catch up soon…
