With lots of wet weather and the Olympics in progress, it is easy to guess what I have been doing the last few days!
Thankfully, son and I are fairly compatible with what we enjoy watching, so there are no heated discussions about what we will watch.
My favourites so far would have to be the cycle road races and the rugby sevens. The most boring I have seen would have to be taekwondo – and my apologies to all those who enjoy it!
Eleven years ago, we were living at the campground at the foot of Mt Maunganui at Tauranga (seen here in the distance), so I thought a few memories from that time might be interesting.
We often went walking around and up and all over the Mount, but this track was one I usually avoided. I believe it has now slipped down the bank, so I feel my fears were justified!
The views were always awesome.
Californian Quail used to wander through the camp and would sometimes even come right inside the caravan to stand and look warily at us.
Looking up towards the top, from about half way up
Being winter, we were not immune to the odd storm passing through
Nearly all the time, whatever the weather, we could watch the surfers out in the waves
Time now to go watch the sailing 😊
