April 18th - We set off on our little jaunt on Good Friday. The day before had been literally cyclonic weatherwise and filled with announcements of various road closures due to bad weather. Would we get there? Would the Pope take a .... in the woods? Would a Bear wear a funny hat?
|Yikes - destination 17.8kms away. This does not look promising|
|Mountain Views from the Kitchen Bench - yep I can live with that|
|A beautiful finish to our first day|
|Mushroom on Toast anyone?|
April 21st Before heading home, we decided to make a wee 12km sojourn to Whangamata - Fung-A-Mar-Tar - for brunch. The town resembled a city, the cafes were overflowing - and then in a back street I spied with my little eye (and the other one) a Pub. A good old pub. So to go with brunch, what does one have when one is in a pub?
She spotted a Cider
And thought that should go inside her
With a hint of apples and bubbles
It went down with no troubles
And then her brunch was beside her
And that was our Easter Weekend at Whiritoa. Back to reality and work, and work and reality.
Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's back to work I go
With an iPad here and a computer there
Hi Ho, Hi Ho !!
