Life tends to be one long holiday when you have a caravan. We spent four nights away at Pohangia Reserve with our caravan buddies. This is such a pretty place – originally a small country school till it closed some years ago, it is now available for camping and picnics for all to enjoy. There was even a few animals over the fence who came to check us out.
Camping at Pohangia Domain
We were busy with BBQing a couple of meals and driving around to explore the area, and relaxing together under the shady trees. On Sunday afternoon we then walked down the road to a lovely little café called Country Fayre, originally the Pohangia Council buildings. Our group was seated around the large horse-shoe shaped Council table, where no doubt many important decisions were made in earlier times. We enjoyed our scones with jam and cream, served with tea or coffee as requested. The café is run by volunteers and opens in the weekends, with all profits going back to the community. Many old photos were displayed on the walls, telling the history of this once thriving little town.
Afternoon tea at Country Fayre
Our nine month old kitten Gemma enjoyed time outside safe on her harness and lead. There were interesting smells around, birds to watch, leaves fluttering in the wind, all sorts of things to keep her happy and interested. I did a little stitching on my current NZ Botanical stitchery block, caught up with friends, and joined in the fun and games which the rally captains had organized. It certainly was a lovely weekend away.
