Had a brilliant day today. Myself and a couple of friends did a nice two hour commute to rural Wairarapa this morning. Went to Busted Blonde’s 10 hectare section near Mauriceville.
Once we got out of Wellington the weather was brilliant. Nothing like a good road trip with some mates on a fine day.
Thought we would be out there for just a couple of hours, but ended up spending five hours drinking and chatting in the sun, in a superb rural retreat. Lots of good conversation, and a superb lunch which included whitebait fritters and venison. Yum.
Reflected on the drive back how lucky we are to be in a country with such great scenery. Am determined the next time we head to the Wairarapa to stay overnight so we can explore the many great backroads.
