At home there is still plenty to sort out but we are gradually working through it weather permitting.This week-end was another Caravan Club rally this time at Paekakariki Holiday Park. We have not been to this camp since about 2004 so it was interesting to find out if there had been any changes.
There nothing much new except for a large air filled mattress/trampoline for the kids. It’s kept inflated by a compressor and was obviously a great favourite with the kids in camp.
After lunch on Saturday we went for a walk through the Queen Elizabeth Park down to the beach. As the weather was fine we ventured along the beach to a nearby boutique shop selling all sorts of gifts along with coffee and ice creams. After enjoying a coffee or an ice cream in the sunshine it was back to camp for tea.
One surprise was a flock of Quail that reside in the park. I had seen about 12 in the caravan storage area but that night they ventured out into the camping area and we counted 28 of them so there is a good breeding flock there.
Sunday and the weather turned pear shaped with more persistent rain. Normally we would have lunch before departing after a rally but today this ritual was overlooked as we all headed home early.
