New Zealand Motor Caravan Association member for 6 years and having new motorhome built in which we, My Love and I will spend an indefinite period of time working and touring around New Zealand. This will be a journal of these adventures.
Our recently excavated new site on a staff property just across the road from Creeksyde which we will come back to after our trip North. Since this was taken it has been raked and grass seed sown which I am watering each day so hopefully we will have a good sward of grass on it by the time we park the "Truck" on it.
Seeing paragliders flying around is almost old hat but you don't often see this many grouped so close together.

At our monthly staff meetings they have raffle draws and Raewyn won a free dinner at Finz Restaurant on the Steamer Wharf as well as two free movie tickets. I won a lollipop!
This is us cashing in on the dinner and the meal was very, very nice and as you can see a wonderful outlook from the premises.

STAR OF THE SHOW
This kid, at the start of the parade was "too scared" to leave his mother but once he saw Elmo he was off out into the middle of the road to meet him. When Elmo had his attention diverted elswhere and walked passed him the kid just stood rigid in of the parade and yelled his head off, so funny. Fortunately Elmo heard him, came back, gave him a hug and a felt flower. The outcome was one very happy kid and highly entertaining for the onlookers.
