63 hawks and 1 wild pig

lonely bay coromandels
We saw 63 hawks during our New Zealand roadtrip. Not all once, but pretty much every day we saw Hawks. I thought it was really special. For the first 3.

And a little wild black pig ran across the road in front of us. Can’t say I’ve ever had that happen before. I thought he looked like a really cute little piggy, hubby thought he’d make great pork chops.

These are just some of the other things I’ll miss about the beautiful North Island of New Zealand;
~ Pulling up to a servo and having someone come out and put petrol in the car for you. Yep!
~ Two lovely checkout chicks at the register, one pricing the goods and one packing said goods into shopping bags. Just like olden days.
~ Eating Crayfish from a take-away container with a plastic fork. So cheap, fresh and delicious.

Really rolly rolling green hills and huge jagged rocky mountains.
~Stunning jewel coloured beaches of emerald, jade, turquoise and sapphire. Not exaggerating.
~Sitting in a steaming hot self-dug (actually mostly hubby-dug) pool of healing water on the beach.
music crochet
~ Roadtrip music, crochet, singing and delirious humour.
~ Funky little towns with Art Deco and Yarn Mills. Hello Napier!
hobbiton matamata
~ Cute little hobbit homes with round doors and windows.
~ Merge like a zip road signs. Can we get some of those here?
welcome bay
~ Feeling welcomed in Welcome Bay.
~ Buying 20 homegrown delicious passionfruits from a lady on the side of road for $5, her asking if we wanted Avocados too, us saying no thanks and her just giving us two anyway. For free.

~ Peace and space.
~ Honesty boxes. There are heaps!
