To finish off the story of my trip I took at Christmas …..
We detoured on the way home via Auckland, NZ
Although the weather was not good, we made a little trip across the harbour to Devonport
And guess what greeted us as we got off the short ferry ride ??????
Devonport is a very pretty little town
Unfortunately the day we went was a public holiday in New Zealand, but we did get a very lovely breakfast and I was totally surprised when I spotted this ……
Very, very lovely and the lady who was working there was very helpful
Unfortunately I had no way of carrying yarn around with me for the day
Btw - Did anyone else watch the show last night "Then The Wind Changed"?
It was about Black Saturday and quite a few tears were shed by me
But I was delighted to spot some of the women from Strathewen creating a knitting project for the children - giant chickens!!!
They commented about how helpful the knitting and time together were
