Had a bit to do today, first me and tony had some practice on a new toy we got yesterday, a set of Powerisers! Atm we are just learning to walk, it's pretty difficult XD
When Tony had gone to work I went to visit my old friend Phil, she was recently had had a second baby, a little girl called Briseis (Br-sigh-iss). We had an interesting evening chatting and amusing Gabriel :]
( Today )
More exploring today, around the Wrekin, which has a little lake at the bottom I didn't know about before and then onto explore some more random lanes and villages x3
I was also testing out an interesting little film camera I got at Bridgnorth the other day, it takes 110 film (which was a sod to find) and I think I'm gonna have even more trouble looking for someone to develop it.
( Shropshire...again )
Off around the county again today XD We were with a couple of Dad's maes so Dad was showing them around some of our favourite spots. We went to Arley and had lunch then onto Bewdley and looked around there. It was a really nice day :]
( Lots of pics today )
My last full day in NZ today, we went on the other side of the Wanganui River road, all the way exploring this and that and stopping for photos. At the end of the trip we stuck around the house and I fed the sheep some apples as a goodbye treat.
( 10 pics under here today, ow )
Our last day in Taupo we explored the falls again, we just can't help ourselves XD We spent an hour or so at a honey shop, where they had bees in hives and videos on the process.
We left not long after that so we could look at some things on our way back home. First we went to a trout farm which now charges so we didn't go in (cheapskates! XD) and then onto have lunch before heading down the desert road by mistake. I didn't mind, I'd wanted to go that way anyway XD
We went up Ruapehu then to find a waterfall and see the view, it was pretty cold and windy but was worth it, the waterfall wasn't the one Dad was originally thinking of but i thought it was pretty awesome X3
( Guess what, it's NZ! )
We went to Palmerston North again today, to mooch at the shops and a couple of other things locally. The weather wasn't very good again so it wasn't much bother to just be mooching about the shops :] I found one I particularly liked, called Smiggle, which has super cute stationary and stuff x3
They also had a bit of a display of old cars in the centre, although occasionally you'll also see cars like this on the road in NZ, yet I'm not sure I've seen one in the UK.
( Red theme today )
