I've known Laura from Our Wee Farm for almost as long as we've been in NZ, our journeys to a new life in NZ echo each others, and although we've followed each other lives via our blogs, forums and Facebook for that time, we've never actually met! Today we remedied that and we drove the short journey to meet up, chat and have lunch and then survey their kingdom that is Our Wee Farm. And what a wonderful place it it too with a lovely hostess and three totally mad but adorable pooches.
Thank you so much Laura for a wonderful time x
Joe and his new friend Tallulah, Bob the boss (lighter dog) and Brodie. we took our dogs too and they all got on very well, which was great.
Their lovely home, the Woolshed and bananas!! Really!
The Swan plants were home to Monarch butterflies, the one on my hand had just emerged from his cocoon. We came home with some swan seed plants.
Applepackers......no....Backpackers...no....Alpacas!! Yes! :D
And a donkey!
And here we are! ♥
When we got back Joe organised himself for a fishing trip out on one of the kayaks at the bach
And yes! he caught a fish, a kahawai, number 13 of 13 caught, the other 12 were snappers which he put back as they were undersize. We had it for dinner with a salad and it was delicious.
While he was fishing I was playing with the camera and trying to take shots on the manual setting
And that's it for today. Tomorrow I will be officially be fifty something, and we're doing the whole touristy thing doing a coach tour to the very tip of NZ.
Not sure if I'll get on tomorrow as we're out for the whole day and I'm experiencing some internet issues here, so I'll post if I can.
