We have left a wet Orewa and wet Bess and friends and moved onto our second lifestyle block homesit at still a very wet Waimauku which is just north east of Auckland. This is another idyllic spot of about 11 acres with about half of it in native bush which includes all the trimmings that go with this sort of country such as wood pigeons, tuis, moreporks and kauri groves.

In the house paddocks and garden area we have Tank the alsatian, Blackie the cat, an aviary full of a variety of birds, nine sheeep and two homosexual rabbits under our care and responsibiltity.

We have been here for two weeks now and as I write this last addition to this post I must say we have been teased with the odd bit of sunshine. Long may it last.
