We are now in the Naki …

20 12 2011

We drove from Nelson to Picton on the night of the 19th and parked at the RSA.  This was great because it’s free and very close to the Ferry terminal as we needed to be there at 7am.

The crossing was a little rougher than previously, but the vehicles seemed to have come through unscathed.  We stopped at a rest area just out of Wellington for a couple of hours, during which time my eldest son Kane came to visit us and check out our new house.

Back on the road again, and we thought we’d find a spot at Waverley/Waitotara to stay for the night.  We looked around but didn’t feel comfortable so we decided as we were only a little over an hour from where we had arranged to stay in New Plymouth that we may as well keep going.  We got to our spot around 8.30pm that night.  A very long day but rapt that we did do it that way.

And, it’s a lovely spot!  We have a tennis court …

The plan now is to get through the Christmas break, hopefully I’ll get some relief milking to do and Amanda will go to some markets in New Plymouth. The first one of these is on the 27th when a cruise ship comes into Port Taranaki for the very first time.  The local Council want to make it worth while for cruise ship passengers and so suggested that there be a market day held specially for them.  Fingers and toes crossed it works for everyone.
