Waiting for the storm

Waiting for the storm to come. Some rain would be really good, hope it won’t be too windy. Last time we were hit by a storm it was not fun. Everyone here survived, and mostly no damage other than some broken chook house and some possibly traumatised chooks.
Hope everyone will be fine.

Drylands – no rain in sight

We have not seen much rain in more than 2 months now but rather hot, sunny weather with wind. Both dries out the land, particularly the hillsides facing the Kaipara where the wind blows from and which the hot afternoon sun hits.

Muddy days

It’s been a few rather wet days. Some with intermittent sunshine but not enough to dry up the ground yet. The cats use the sunny breaks to go outside but other than that they seem to be in hibernation.

It’s so nice to get outside between rain break. The weather has been warming up over the the last days and we are getting 20 deg during the day.

Quiet but busy during another Covid-19 lockdown

I picked a few pictures to keep you entertained and maybe – once we are out of lockdown – you may want to drop by for a stay and enjoy some time off. We will be opening in level 2.
