After work yesterday, I decided to treat myself and get a burger and chips.
Then I thought, might just go park up somewhere and enjoy being outside for a little while, even though it was a bit cloudy with spots of rain around.

ABOVE:  The Waikato River is so pretty in places.  I really enjoyed sitting watching it flow past.  Oh, and there were two hawks on the hunt ... very interesting watching them too.
They seemed to be trying to catch fish, which isn't what I was expecting to see.

Having some time to myself, out of the house was just lovely ... I need to do that more often.

I am home sewing all day today, until mid afternoon, then I go to work at the rest home for a few hours.


  1. It looks like a very pretty site to sit and enjoy the outdoors. Have a lovely day ... I'm pleased you are able to enjoy some sewing time today.

  2. Gorgeous spot. I drove down to rotorua yesterday and I love all around the waikato... well most places 😉

  3. Good idea getting off into nature for a bit of time out, you could make it a regular thing, even if you just take your packed lunch from home or a thermos of tea :-)

    1. TEA? TEA? Wash your mouth out with SOAP you daft tart!!! Lol

    2. Sorry must have been auto correct - I meant of course Diet coke lol.

    3. LOL Tracy - can you imagine Chris pacing a thermos of tea? Are those pigs flying across the sky?? haha...

  4. Glad to see you taking time out. But don't forget to show us the baby quilt!!!
    You live in a beautiful part of the world - it's so easy to take things like that for granted, isn't it, and not get out and enjoy them. Good for the soul.

  5. Always good to spend time with nature.

  6. Its a beautiful spot Chris, good for the soul :-)

    to say keep up the excellent work!

  8. What fab pics, but really Chris do you have to make me homesick?? (smiles )
    Seeing that area you stopped and had your rest and Kai near,, and the peace and calmness and the scenery ,Toetoe etc made us remember ,,,why we are coming home next month to do Nth and Sth ..(excitement plus)

    Good for you sometimes,, we are so caught up in family work and life we forget whats so close by

    You have shown us so much more of the Waikato with your pics and also Sue who referred us to your blog shows there's far more hidden places there off the beaten track,, and we so appreciate you and her keeping us up with it.
