and the Catching Up continues

The holiday visitings continue with a wonderful night spent with Simons brother and his partner, and their two lovely kids, at their home. They live in Harwood, which sits directly across the harbour from us, so much so that we can see each others houses with a decent pair of binoculars. The early evening was spent sitting around a picnic table while food was barbequed, wine was enjoyed, conversation flowed with great ease, and the kids jumped constantly on the trampoline, occasionally colliding but with no lasting injuries to tell of. The front part of the property consists largely of sand as they are at sea-level and look straight across the water, and they have a Firepit in their front yard for just such an occasion as having invited guests. Before the kids headed to bed the fire was lit and they all had the chance to toast a few marshmellows, something Reuben and Mia had not done before. With a great amount of anticipation the night was spent in The Sprite, a soft top caravan from the 1970’s belonging to Simons parents. The wind decided not to calm down, so there was a fair amount of flapping walls, but everyone slept well and we all have a good story to tell for it.

    Ha! We just bought a sprite poptop before Christmas and took it up to Otaki. Great piece of retro camping! Was a little rocky on the windy nights but lots of fun. Pleased you had a lovely holiday.
