Some images from our camping holiday

I think everyone needs to go camping, unplug, be social in a real world

The walk…

 

Tha bach (cottage, crib) has no electricity or cell signal and no road access. So you either go by boat or walk in at low tide.

Another great holiday

We traveled our usual migration this year, up the East Coast then on to Northland. Love it. Some images from Tuparoa.

churchrszd
Old St Mary’s church, and although my grandmother is buried here I have actualy never been inside. Nor had my father who was born and bred here. I guess an interesting fact is all religions (except Anglican) were banned here on the Coast. So I’m proud to say that we weren’t….

Tuparoa

About 70 of us traveled to Tuparoa, the most I can remember at one time. It was amazing, especially for the moko and great grandchildren who have never been there.

Ruataupare

The kāuta was too small to feed us all so we went in to the wharenui. Some would freak out about that. Yeah, nah.
