Today was the last day of the tour south of Auckland and we left Te Kuiti near Waitomo and started our journey ‘home’ to Auckland, but first we had decided to look at Kiwis again, this time at Otorohanga. We saw two kiwis, and several rare New Zealand birds but I personally hate seeing things like falcons confined to a relatively small enclosure. Having said that I’m sure they do valuable work in the conservation of rare species.
We arrived back at Fiona’s house and spent the afternoon catching up with washing and trying to relocate her wi-fi equipment to a better location. Julia from next door and her two dogs came in and caused a bit of havoc fighting over a ‘woof-woof’. No takeaway tonight for a change, just Fiona’s excellent home cooking, plenty of wine, and lots of chat.
