on saturday we went for an afternoon spin. the weather has been unseasonably GORGEOUS for this time of year (autumn and a week after daylight saving ended). we had a late lunch in a country cafe then went to the lookout at the top of paekakariki hill (pronounced PIE-COCK-A-REE-KEY). go on - say it. you know you want to. now say it again. just because you can. now look over your shoulder to make sure none of your kids were listening and wondering if in fact, this time, mum has actually lost her mind...
that's looking north up state highway 1. i know that means nothing to most of you, but just thought i'd throw it out there
ok, so that's not me, and i'll tell you why. when we went out i forgot the camera (never forget the camera), but DH took tara for a spin yesterday and they pretty much retraced our steps, with one exception - they took the CAMERA!!!
tara hasn't been on the back of a bike since she was 19. as you can see, she was very happy to have broken that drought!
this is a crocodile bike. in the hands of 4 squealing girls, they are impossible to steer, and the simple instruction "stay left!" is not able to be understood. they are also a huge amount of fun!
the boatsheds at oriental parade. nice huh?
thanks to amanda for yet another award!
nice to know i'm putting a smile on people's faces. i'm sure enjoying 'visiting' with y'all out there in blogland.140 words
ok, so i used to do this for a living, but give it a go and let me know.
happy monday everyone!
