Four days into the year and I think TOF and I have this rest and relaxation (R & R) gig sorted. Going back to work eventually could prove difficult!!
It would seem I have won the prize for first Toms
to be grown and picked
Mine may be of the cocktail variety
but I am FIRST!!
Yesterday afternoon we mozied on out to Raglan. The paddocks are looking a little dry and I guess the farmers will be calling for some RAIN soon.
The sky looked like it was brewing
up something but nothing came of it.
Just heat clouds I suspect.
We wandered on the wharf,
people were fishing, shopping,
and eating fish and chips.
The daisy painted bike was gorgeous.
From the wharf we drove through town to head out to Manu Bay. I made a quick movie of the bay, not that good but you will at least get an idea of what it really looks like.
The wild west coast,
black sand and rocks on a coast line
that goes on forever.
Dudes were out surfing, blokes were fishing off the rocks and three guys were diving, snorkel and flipper styles.
Natural beauty everywhere.
Rock hopping surfers,
that all made it into the surf.
The paddle boarder fascinated me because I thought they only paddled in the flat stuff. There was enough surf to entertain a good size bunch of surfers.
Yeah Manu Bay is pretty dam fine!!
I wore some seriously faded clothes yesterday.
But seriously comfortable!!
I water the garden at night when it is nice and cool.
How wicked does the hose spray look at night?
And the garden so appreciated the evening drink.
Today was another glorious hot one
so I put the cushions on the swing seat.
Oscar found it to be the best seat in the garden.
We enjoyed an afternoon cuppa outside on the swing seat.
Tex chose water.
think we have totally got the
R & R
give it a go!!!
