First--knitting. During the two weeks in NZ, I knit about an inch and a half on a sock. When I got home, I realized I wanted it to be a cowl instead. So I call this the 'vamp' cowl, since I'm just vamping and knitting whatever I want on it:
About half an hour away was the town of Kerikeri, where the first missionaries lived. This is the stone store (one of the original buildings) and the Kemp House, built in the 19th century and lived in (with minimal improvements) by Kemp family members until the 1970s.
We took a ferry to the town of Russell, where we walked up to the highest point where the British erected a flagstaff (that was cut down a couple of times). What views!
