Hello Mokau

No posts the last couple of days as we have been back and forward to our new beach acquisition. As if we didn't have enough garden to care for, we purchased this cute little batch but the gardens, especially at the back, are very overgrown. We spent two days clearing the overgrowth on the right of this photo so we could get a vehicle round the back and yesterday we started on the foliage on the left. I will replant the gardens in bromeliads and succulents that do not need a lot of attention. The back is very protected and sunny and there is a built in area to dine and just enjoy the sun. I am hoping to reclaim the area out from the kitchen window which is on the left of this picture and create a special Carol meditation area. I have to work this weekend - we are moving back into level 2 Covid lockdown, but a team of family members have gone down there so I wonder what I will see when I get to go down again. Mokau is a little settlement mainly retirees and fishermen beach homes - many much grander than our little house. But it is actually bigger inside than it looks from the photo. It is a bit dated and has had interesting bits added on from time to time but I am sure we will create something relaxing from it oh - and that's my hubby standing alongside his ute. We have been loading the deck of the ute up and taking it up to Kim's burn pile. It will make a good bonfire for the kids to enjoy and then cook marshmellows in the embers. Mokau is just an hour from home so we will be able to go back and forward to enjoy the beach and fishing and whitebaiting and walks etc etc. Work hard now to be ready for summer!!!!
