Bizarre bouncing squirrels...........

Sweet-peas how are you going???

As you can see the squirrels are full of bouncing craziness!!!!
Thats what a few fabulous days of sunshine can do.
The stay in the Coromandel was lovely, we bounced on the blow-up pillow, I had so much fun rummaging in the op-shop called The Bizarre and another kiwi classic "pineapple lumps"!!!!!!!  Of course from the 4 square shop, how kiwi is that. So many cliches..........
Now since we are on the subject of 'Kiwiana' the squirrels are in Paeroa, and as all little kiwi's know its famous for Lemon and Paeroa fizzy drink. I look forward to sharing some truly cheesy pics of us with the big bottle next post. Oh you should see the huge amount of great antique, vintage and retro stores here too, eeekkkk!!!!
We are staying just outside Paeroa in the Karangahake Gorge which is just stunning and today we are 
off to explore the many spectacular bush walks and gold mining history.

OK poppets hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!!

LOve V&W


  1. What with the Fish and Chips from your last post and those Pineapple Lumps ... swoon... you really are showing us A Slice of Heaven.

  2. Bwa-ha-ha!! LOL. What fun. I love your jumpy shots and the woogly face after eating those treats. I have never heard of pineapple lumps but they sure look good. Such mad hopping squirrels!

  3. Happiness=bouncing squirrels! You guys are totally having a blast! Wandering through all these fantastic shops and pineapple lumps, who could ask for anything more?

  4. Vanessa, have you discovered some sort of magical elixir of youth? You look about 12! I think travelling, bouncing, pineapple lumps (Helga sent me some, yum!) browsing, and seeing the fabulous sights of NZ must be suiting you very well! xxxx

  5. I agree with Curstise, you look like you are aging backwards! Teehee! It's so wonderful that you're enjoying your adventure. I love Paeroa but I find the prices a wee bit much for me! Ahh how we love L&P! Love to you. Xx

  6. Vix knows all about pineapple lumps...thanks for reminding me I need to pop a packet in her next parcel!
    EEEEEEEK! You darling Squirrels are clearly having a barrel of Kiwiana I think holidaying agrees with you.You do indeed look like you've found some elixir of youth!!!
    Love and sneaky cuddles form G and I......he's just popped on a Billie Holiday cd whilst he prepares a roast!YUM!

  7. I always love jump photos, so I love yours too. You both look as if you're having lots of fun and are very happy together. Wish you the best. Hugs from Miss Maple

  8. I have absolutely no idea about any of your NZ cultural references! But you look so gorgeous and happy and BOUNCY!!! Sarah xxx

  9. Coromandel is such a great town - I love Pineapple Lumps, now I want some! You guys look like you're having the best time ever on the bouncy pillow:D
