Oh what a storm......
The squirrels spent an extra night in Lower Hutt to wait out a terrible storm that sounds like it hit the whole of the country, Wow did it blow.
We where so eager to hit the road and see more great places.
This is my new vintage 50's skirt I brought in Nelson and the "O" brooch was a sallies find.
I must find a better top to go with it, I am wearing my yucky old t-shirt and scruffy cardigan.
Warren took these photos at the camping ground before we left, above me in the Pohutukawa tree were some cheeky Tui birds that had keep us entertained by chasing the blackbirds out of what must be their trees.
I was so happy to get a photo of one of them, they are so beautiful with the white tuff of feathers at there throats, and gorgeous blue hue to there feathers.
Once on the road we made our first stop in the lovely wee town of Martinborough and had a walk around the main street, looking at all the cute shops.
Back in Basil we drove through lots of great towns including Mangatainoka famous for the Tui Brewery.
It was a beautiful day exploring the Wairarapa.
The squirrels have stopped in Dannevirke tonight.
