We had a busy long weekend away attending the National Caravan Club Rally at Foxton. There were people attending from far and wide from other clubs around the North Island, and it was nice to catch up with others from different clubs who we only see now and again at these kind of gatherings. I found a little spare time to do some stitching, and have two more finished blocks (slightly changed) from the Alphabet Noel series by Michelle Ridgeway.
W is for Wreath and X is for Xmas
We walked up town to get a few supplies, which I carried back to camp in my machine embroidered bag. I keep this in the caravan for occasions such as this. The bag was made by “bagendbabe” and bags can be embellished with all sorts of sayings, from crafts, occupations, seasonal. Do check out the web site, there is a bag for all interests.

Foxton is one of those small towns which has a lot of history, shown by the interesting murals on the walls. This one shows the merging of two cultures in the colonial days.

We had a great time away, enjoying Easter buns and eggs, a quizz night, and dancing, morning teas and Happy Hours.
The Easter Bunnies found us
And a big crowd of 90 happy campers went to the local RSA for a meal. We chose roast beef, and it was certainly delicious, melt in the mouth tender, served with rich gravy and roast veggies. All for a very reasonable price too.

So that was how we spent our Easter Weekend. Hope everyone else had a lovely time too.
