Camping in the Rain

We are away for a few days in our caravan, camping at Eketahuna.  The large 6.2 earthquake felt a couple of weeks ago was centred 16km from Ekatahuna and the small town got quite a shaking.  The local supermarket made the TV news showing quite as mess as bottles were smashed all over the floor.  Luckily the after-quakes have settled down and we have not felt a single shake this weekend.

After several nice sunny days the weather has changed, and the rain is coming down fast.  Our planned picnic today will not be happening!  We will probably have a day in camp instead, quietly amusing ourselves.  I’ve hand sewing to do, books to read, and Muffy will be getting groomed shortly – she always enjoys this extra attention and helps out by licking herself as I am busy with the comb.

Selwyn and Kath arrived at our caravan rally towing their newly purchased European caravan, and very nice it is too.  We were all interested to peep inside, and I was most taken with their bright and breezy set of cushions, featuring retro caravans.


If this dratted rain eases up after lunch, we may well go for a drive and explore the surrounding countryside, since our picnic plans are in disarray.  Or maybe we will just stay put and keep dry.
