A wonderful weekend of exploring and good company. Guy and Maureen opened their beautiful new home in Omokoroa in the Bay of Plenty. Friday we explored the Te Puna Quarry gardens full of amazing sculptures,views and manicured gardens. Friday night was mingling and a buffet dinner with lasagne to die for - thanks so much to our amazing host and hostess . Saturday was a walking tour of the waterfront with some magnificent homes and in particular an unexpected guided tour of the home of Rocky, a Taiwanese man who proudly showed us around his garden - simply amazing. Lunch at the boat club then back home for another sumptuous buffet. Sunday it's overseas to Matakana Island and a down to earth tour conducted by the locals using a carriage pulled by draft horse, shanks pony and a ride on a flat deck truck to the beach and all corners of the island .The cyclists also completed a grand tour to all corners of the island with a wonderful lunch stop on the beach opposite Mt Maunganui.
