      Home of New Zealand's second best Fish 'n' chip shop. We pulled into a caravan/motor home park to stay for the night and as we were checking in we inquired with the rather jovial lady behind the counter where a warewhare was (that's the Ware House cheap shop to everyone She told us about one near by but the said not to go …

      ... many respects!
