I’VE BEEN AWAY…

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.

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…

TWO LITTLE PIGS…

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.
