The enormous dump trucks and diggers of New Zealands ex-biggest gold mine looked like toys in this huge hole!

Mr. Tickled

This guy was the most tickled Dad we’ve ever seen! All the children on the campsite joined in for some major tickling.

Cow Field Camp

We had to watch out for the patties and Moses got up at dawn to watch the cows being milked from the tent. Hardly surprising that one of Herbie’s favourite words is “Moo!”

Quiet Time

Always time for reading at the end of the day. Nice to read some of Carol’s now grown up children’s old books.


What a cow day! After meeting these giants along the way later it was a treat to watch the real thing being milked.
