10/01/10 – Tauranga -Bay of Plenty

Arrived at our next destination – a beautiful mock Victorian Lodge . It turned out that we had the whole house to ourselves and we felt like Lord and Lady of the Manor (for a little while at least!).    They hold a lot of weddings here and it was an amazing place.  We were told to treat it as our home including the washing machine (yippee!).  It was nice to be in a 'home' and a great place to catch up and rest.

Weather was mixed, great on arrival but the next day was pretty miserable.  Drove out to a bird sanctuary and gardens which turned out to be delightful and the weather also improved.  We bought some bird food to feed the birds and got a bit flustered when they started swooping down on our heads to get it- boy did they scratch!  But it was great fun.  It was also interesting to see all the kiwi, avocado farms and vineyards around the area.
