      ... lawns, and serves a very acceptable coffee. Tourists wander all around the gardens and are somewhat bemused by the croquet match, stopping to take photos and asking questions about croquet. The ref comes over and asks them not to interrupt the World Champs! Pete plays 2 matches (3 x 1 hour games per match), but alas loses both.

      ... clean water hookup and dumping station. We stayed the night there and this morning fay emptied the poo tank for the first time.

      ... We got picked up from the Motel from one of four of their buses at 5:10pm and then head to the Village about 20 minutes away. It starts with each bus load having to choose their 'Chief', who then has to be greeted by Maori Warriors and be officially welcomed into the village.
