Thank you everyone for your lovely comments yesterday J
Today I thought of going for a drive. Impossible of course at this time, but I thought that today I could go back and relive a drive that my husband and I did on a lovely autumn day in 2009.
We were staying at Hastings at the time, in the Hawkes Bay, and went for a short afternoon drive along part of the Tukituki River.
We saw many trees covered in autumn beauty.
The road we took first went past Te Mata Peak, part of the Craggy Range.
The river itself was soon reached and we caught glimpses of it as we traveled along.
We saw children out on horseback.
There were sheep grazing beneath trees clothed in splendid colour.
We drove down one side of the river before crossing over it on this bridge.
Finally, we followed the road back home along the other side of the river.
It was lovely to take a short drive in the countryside – and it is lovely again now to revisit that happy time.
Making joyful memories with the ones you love is the best thing you can ever do in this life,
