Today has been the most beautiful day – the sun shining, the weather warm, and the first day I have had off during this school holidays in 8 days. To say I am grateful for the pause does not even begin to describe it. Its been such a wonderful day with the kids – we have lounged, done long overdue hair cuts, tidied, visited friends, made Sherbet for the first time, and spent the afternoon at the wonderful Orokonui Ecosanctuary. What an incredible place this is – so very beautiful. We joined a holiday program activity about frogs, but were given such a wealth of information about New Zealand native birds and animals, as well as a pretty intensive guide of the Ecosanctuary itself. Did you know that kiwi’s can swim? Or that frogs use their eyes to swallow food? Or that New Zealand native frogs don’t have ears therefore don’t make any sound either? It’s amazing work these people do, and they do it with such passion. We had an hour and a 1/2 strolling around this gorgeous place, saw eels, an abundance of bird life, stunning native bush and amazing views over Blueskin Bay, and 2 of the 200 remaining Takahe in the world. What a day!
