On The Other Side Of The Water

Each time we have parked at Manganese Point we have looked to the other side of the harbour and asked that age old question “what is over there?” so we thought we would find out. Due to meet our friends at the Waipu Golf Club a little later that day we decided to explore the… Read More On The Other Side Of The Water

Castlepoint

Driving out from Masterton 🚌 to visit Castlepoint is one of those things that anyone who is visiting the area probably does given that the lighthouse is one of the most visited in the country.

Where is everyone? – Herbertville

How to survive the motorhome show

Last year when I retired we decided that we would upgrade the 1995 Mitsubishi Canter that we had owned since 2001 with something that was a bit more modern,  a bit more spacious, has a decent kitchen and big garage but most importantly one that would have a fixed bed in the rear. So we… Read More How to survive the motorhome show
