Beachfront property!! Woohoo.
Feeling taukumekume this week. A little lost despite the freedom. Traveling with a dog has its blessings and challenges. I don't enjoy crowded places so found I kept wanting to move on from the summer hotspots. Hanging about the top of Te Waipounamu/South Island while waiting to book my motorhome in for repair and knowing that I need a place to kip for me and the dog.
Life's ironies. A place called Ngahere meaning bush or forests is a sawmill yard. Just one of many.
Highlights: Hands up the driveways I visited with lots of love, hugs and laughter. Catching up on too many years that had elapsed. Making it the year I don't just say "let's catch up for coffee sometime".
Traveling from Middle Earth (Lord of The Rings, Rivendell, Kaitoke) to the centre of Aotearoa.
Waiting for insurance to contact me while they were waiting for me 🤔🙃.
Needing to just stop and ground myself I pulled up at Kina Beach. While I was pulled over on roadside checking the map another motorhome must have past me and got the last park on the beach front.
Fortune favors the indecisive. It turns out that my spot got TV reception apparently but the beach front park didn't. Woohoo. Swap.
