Today we have done something rather different - we've been to the local vintage steam railway! We were driving elsewhere when we had to stop for a steam train to cross the road (you know what I mean) and so we decided to track (sorry) it down and see what was going on. We had two 12km rides, a look around the workshops and a good lunch from the station cafeteria.
Later this afternoon we spent a lovely time at the Whitangi Waterfalls, where there's a great swimming hole - we were assured by the local children who were diving down the waterfall into the pool. No, we didn't try it but we did enjoy sitting in the sunshine watching the water and listening to the birds and cicadas. Bliss.
