The girls were thrilled to see the cannons firing, emitting a sulfurous odor which reminded us of Rotorua (see Big Trip v.1).

The girls had long flowery dressed and frilly bonnets, while the boys sported thee cornered hats and vests. The sneakers that some of the girls were wearing looked quite incongruous with their long dresses and aprons, while the brightly coloured plastic toys poking from the boys pockets made Beth and I smile.
