... outdoors, in the fresh air, in a country that is the polar opposite to where we have been used to living for the past 3 years.

We have a couple of days to be shown the ropes, then we're on our own for a few weeks while Debbie and Graham head to Australia, for a well earned holiday. We're looking forward to interacting more with these lovely doe-eyed cows.

Chill out day

We are up at 8am as we are in the lounge on our airbeds. It has rained for most of the night. At around 11am we look around the shops. For lunch we go to the Moose restaurant and all pick a dish from the 20 dollar menu. The t-bone steak and pork ribs are massive and very yummy.We head back to the farm via a different route to see more scenery. After coffee and cake we all do our own thing getting ready to meet the lads at the campsite at ...
