the replay button does not go away until I click on the shrink,enlarge icon at the corner.
Then the words echoed and were played twice!!!
The steepest part of the track starts before the quad comes into view, and then it goes on forever.
These cows and maybe the four horses were at the top of a large paddock, the one place that I did sit on the back and ride, the hill was long, and a bit steep at the end. The cattle were so quiet, they hardly moved to let us through.
This cow was in the next paddock to where the A Frame is, she is not in calf,
but is that fat always. The funniest thing is she looks lopsided, so goodness knows how big she will be later on.
The early morning fog cleared away later in the day, and to join in with others around the country we had a red cover and black tyres, as we remembered Christchurch.
Back home, I am learning to use my new camera. It is superb. thanks to Bruce Watt Photography and the wonderful staff there. Everything was explained, options of each model thoroughly described, and my choice was a Canon 550D. Yes, I really have one.Wow!! Wow!!! What can I say !!! So over the next two weeks with no internet,
no phone, no TV, and only generator power, surely I will get to learn more , I will have so many choices for good shots, and no distractions. Knitting, books and some stitcheries will fill in the other time I have left.

Last year we stayed at Piropiro Flats for a week, and one hunter and his dog became separated.
Another young man found Jake, and he ended up with Ritchie, after a ride back to our camp on the quad.
He listened so carefully to every truck, vehicle and quad for 2 days. Then the next afternoon he sat up, ears up straight, then was so excited.
we couldn’t hear the car, but he knew who it was. Yes, his Dad had got the message and was so happy, thankful and relieved that Jake was found.
Grateful does not even begin to say how they both felt. Jake did circles, jumps, his tail nearly wagged off. Here he is in a sad pose, still waiting.
Who will we find this time?
