Two old wrinklies with two west highland terriers Traveling New Zealand

Gisborne – NZMCA

Woke this morning to a beautiful day on Mahia Peninsular but it is time to move on as we slowly wend our way North (not mentioning Auckland-bound lol)………….many thanks to our hosts at The Boatshed – Stuart & Carol. When we arrived on the eve of The Wedding I was even invited by Carol to watch it at their place with a group of other ladies but chose to drink my champagne for the prelude and watch the event tucked up in my bed……PERFECT!!

Someone needs to mow the lawns Poppy


While walking from the beach we found this gorgeous house which was originally a lighthouse keepers home and moved to the site in Mahia.


So, moved on after Rod walked the dogs to exhaustion and did the usual WSS on-route (thinking our WSS are a bit like never letting a toilet go by……just in case…important as you age) then on to the Paknsav for dog meat before we arrived at the brand-new NZMCA park at Gisborne. Very impressed with the facility and it is only over the road to the beach for a walk.

Why are we waiting Poppy…..the WSS takes soooo long


We were surprised that we arrived intact due to two separate idiots who decided to take us on while coming up to a tight blind corner…..idiota as the Italians would say………….shocked at their stupidity!! Check Rod’s Facebook to see the footage (thanks goodness for the windscreen camera)!!

So, having walked part of the beach and engaged in canine happy-hour I am salivating at the table as I wait for my dinner which smells AMAZING!! Homemade burgers mmmmmm!!!


We are expecting to move on to Opotiki in the morning so will post again tomorrow!! Good night all, sleep well!!
